When you attend the Practice to register you will be asked to complete a GP registration form, and new patient questionnaire forms.
The receptionist will offer you a new patient appointment. Acceptance on to the list is as at the discretion of the Doctor. We will ask you for proof of identity.
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.
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.

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 may be 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:
- 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 your name and address)
If you are 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 email/write to them directly in which case 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.
