How to Register as a Patient

New patients wishing to join our practice are given an appointment with the Practice Nurse for a Registration Medical. You will not see a GP at this time.

No medication will be issued at this appointment and you should therefore ensure that you have enough medication to last you from your current GP surgery.

Information Required

  • You must provide us with 2 forms of personal identification, one of which should be photographic (i.e. passport, driving licence). Please ensure you bring these with you to your registration medical as failure to do so will result in your registration process being delayed.
  • Please download and complete the forms:

    Patient Registration Form
    New Patient Details Form

    These forms are also available from reception. Please fill in as much information as possible on the registration forms before you come to the appointment.

Please Note

It is our practice policy to allocate new patients a registration appointment with the Practice Nurse. If you know you cannot attend your registration appointment, you should telephone us on 0141 889 8809 as soon as possible to allow the appointments to be given to other patients and to reschedule a more suitable time/date.

Temporary Residents

Patients visiting from another area in the UK for a period of less than 3 months, and who become unwell, are entitled to be seen as a temporary resident. You will be able to make an appointment in the same way as one of our normally registered patients.

If you only require a supply of your regular medication and you are normally resident in Scotland, it may be possible to obtain this from a local pharmacy under the "unscheduled care" scheme. This will avoid any delay whilst waiting for a GP appointment. If you are ordinarily resident in England, Wales or Northern Ireland, it still may be possible for a pharmacist to liaise directly with your usual GP in order to arrange medication.
