Please either visit the health centre during normal working hours and tell the receptionist you would like to register or alternatively complete the pre-registration form online. You have the right to state a preference of doctor or nurse and to have this recorded in writing.
If registering online, please also complete a new patient questionnaire. The practice also offers a service called Vision Online Services. This allows you to order your repeat medication and book and cancel ROUTINE GP appointments (currently suspended due to COVID). The form can be found on the 'Registering Online' tab.
If you are registering your baby, we require the form issued by the Registrar.
New patients are offered a screening appointment with the nurse or the doctor.
To change your details, please either visit the surgery, telephone or use our online form found at the bottom of our Home page. It is important to change your details as soon as possible so that your doctor has the correct information.

If you are ill while away from home and need to receive treatment for a medical condition, you can register as a temporary patient with a practice for up to 3 months. This will allow you to be on the practice list and still remain a patient of your usual GP. Simply contact a local practice for advice about this. Please be aware that you cannot register as a temporary patient anywhere within reasonable distance of your own practice, and that practices are not obliged to accept you on to their list although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment.
Temporary registration expires after 3 months, at which point you will have to reapply or register permanently with that practice.
If you have run out of medication whilst away from home and are registered with a Scottish GP practice, you can attend any community pharmacy who will be able to help you without the need to be seen by a GP.
