Registering with the Practice

Registration is a simple process and can be carried out at the following times:

  • 9:00am to 5:00pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
  • All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking
  • Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information
  • All patients must complete a Registration Form and Health Questionnaire for each family member registering with the Practice
  • These forms must be handed into the Practice along with your two forms of identification as described below in accordance with our registration policy

PLEASE NOTE YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED WITH THE PRACTICE UNTIL ALL PAPERWORK HAS BEEN HANDED INTO THE PRACTICE.  

There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP. For example, you may live too far away. If this is the case simply choose another GP in your local area.

We cover the following post code areas: G31,G32,G33,G34, & G40.

Once you’ve been accepted as a patient, your medical records will be transferred to the Practice. Your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the Practice.

Registration Policy

Anybody in Scotland , whether a resident or overseas visitor, may access primary care services at a GP practice without charge. No documents are required to register with a GP; however, to facilitate the registration process we would request that two forms of identification are produced, ideally if possible, one should be photographic, and one must contain your address. You maybe asked to sign a practice form to give your permission for us to retain these documents with your electronic patient record. 

These documents maybe be used to confirm your details with our local Health Board. This also helps to ensure the correct matching of your details to any existing NHS record, enabling previous medical records to transfer smoothly between practices. We appreciate your assistance in this matter.

Types of acceptable photographic evidence:

  • Passport
  • Drivers Licence
  • Official ID card from Public Services body; or
  • Student matriculation card (current year)

Other documents for proof of residency that are acceptable are:

  • Recent utility bill (within last 3 months)
  • Council Tax document
  • Television Licence
  • Payslips (last two months)
  • Rent book/agreement (Public Body or Private Landlord)
  • Bank Statement (Name and address section only required)
  • Solicitors Letter (Clearly showing name and address)

If unable to provide photographic evidence then we would request you provide, one of the above and one of the following:

  • Birth Certificate
  • Marriage Certificate
  • Divorce Annulment Papers

If you are unable to provide any documentation, then we may still register you. However we may need to contact our registration department first, to verify your information with them, and ensure your medical records are not delayed in being transferred to the Practice. This will normally involve a phone call between you, our registration department, and ourselves. Alternatively we may also write or email them directly, we will require your consent for us to do so.

If you have any questions regarding NHS entitlement, or our registration policy please contact the Practice.
