Registering with the Practice

Non-urgent advice: Registration

It is is important to note that you can only permanently register with a GP practice if you’re staying in the area for more than 3 months. If you move out of the practice area, you will need to register with a practice in your new area as soon as you move.

How to register:

  • fill out an online registration form
  • visit reception during surgery hours and collect /complete a paper registration form
  • download the forms
  • you will be asked to provide 1 form of photographic ID and proof of address, although these are not mandatory (refer to our registration policy regarding ID)
  • the practice has a non-discrimination policy for accepting new patients. 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.

Completed applications take 7 days to process.  Access to practice services can be made after this time.

If you stay outwith our Practice area

The practice covers the area of Glasgow which includes the postcodes G41 2; G41 3; G41 4; G43; G44 3 & G46 6. 

Please note that our catchment area has recently been reduced and we therefore may have patients registered outwith these postcodes from when our catchment area was larger. Unfortunately we are unable to register new patients outside these postcodes. 

If you do not stay within our catchment area other GP practices can be found by accessing the link shown below.

Registered with a Doctor outside the UK

Please note that if you were previously registered with a Doctor outside the UK then the Practice will not have access to your medical notes. All patients who register from abroad should contact their previous Doctor to obtain copies of their notes.

Register online

Step 1: Complete online registration form

Our online registration form will collect your details, a brief outline of your medical history and record your preferences. This information may be added to your record and will allow us to begin to provide you with medical services.

Step 2: Upload scans of photo identity and proof of address

Please deliver to the practice copies of two forms of your identity.
One form of identity must contain a photo of yourself and the other must provide evidence of your current address. You may upload your forms online.

Download the Form(s)

If you prefer you can download then complete the registration form, via NHS inform and upload to the practice on the form below. If you are unable to do this please contact the surgery for advice on how to register.

Once you have completed the form(s) please upload to the practice. 

Your medical records remain with your registered GP but we will provide you with full medical care while you are in the area. If you leave the UK for a period of more than three months the doctor is no longer responsible for your medical care and may not provide repeat medication in your absence.

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 our Practice for up to 14 days. After 14 days, you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

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.

Non-emergency consultations and treatment may be a charged. Please ask at reception for details of our private fees.
