Register as New Patient
New patients are always welcome. You will be asked to complete a registration form, health check questionnaire and may be asked to attend an appointment with a practice nurse or the health care assistant. You can arrange this by telephoning the practice or by coming into the surgery.
If you arrange by telephone please pop into the surgery to collect and complete the relevant paperwork.
You will need to bring photographic ID, such as your passport or driving licence.
You can also complete pre-registration forms via the links below.
We are able to register patients from the following areas:
West Quarter Burn (New Housing Estate off New Hallglen Road)
Temporary Patient Registrations
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
