Join the Practice


When you register

When you register, you will be asked to fill out a Registration Form and Medical Questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable amount of time for us to receive your medical records from your previous practice. Forms are available from reception or online versions can be completed and submitted below. There is also a separate form available to register for our online services. Our online services include booking appointments, ordering medication and updating your own personal contact details. We require appropriate identification for the registration of online services. Please call into the practice with two forms to ID to include a photograph and proof of address.


NB If you are on medication, we would ask that you hand in a copy of your repeat medication slip or proof from your previous GP of medications you are currently taking. If we do not receive this information with your registration forms we will not be able to issue any medication until we have received verification from your previous GP. It is best to make sure you have enough medication to allow us time to receive your medical records. 


If needed, newly registered patients will be invited to have a consultation with a Practice Nurse for a basic health check. This gives you the opportunity to provide us with background medical information. It also provides us with an opportunity to welcome you to the practice, measure your blood pressure, carry out other basic health checks and discuss any medication you may be taking. 


Please check that you live within our practice boundary as we cannot take patients outwith this area.




And remember, if you wish to register for our online services, just pop into the surgery to complete a form and bring along two forms of identification. (One photographic & one proof of address).

Military Veterans

Have you previously served in the military?

In conjunction with the pledge from the UK government, we are aiming to support military veterans with priority NHS care.

All veterans are entitled to priority NHS care for any condition, as long as it is related to their service.

A veteran is someone who has served in the armed forces for at least one day in the regular or reservist forces.

If this applies to you, please inform reception.


If you have recently left the military and wish to register with the Practice, please make sure you hand in your FMed133 along with your registration form and medical questionnaire. Your FMed133 is a medical summary form that you will be given on discharge which contains important details and is a summary of all medical treatments along with your vaccination history and any specialist care received.

Temporary 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 within the area you are staying.

If you are staying within that area for a period of time, 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.

Non English Speakers

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.
