New Patient Registration
New patients are very welcome. If you would like to register with our practice, please visit the surgery and ask our receptionist for a New Patient Registration form or alternatively print off the following registration form, complete and bring down to the surgery New Patient Registration Form . You will also be provided with a Practice Leaflet and urine sample bottle.
You will be asked to show two forms of identification (ID). It would be preferrable that one form of ID is photographic.
With completion of the Registration form, our receptionist may arrange for you, a New Patient Medical appointment with our practice nurse.
This appointment is a basic check-up and allows us to gain important medical information about you, prior to your medical notes arriving from your previous doctor.
No medication will be issued (especially controlled drugs) until your medical notes have been received from your previous GP - this can take up 4 weeks so please ensure you have enough medication from your previous doctor.
The geographical area served comprises postal code G73 (with some in G72 - depending on area).
Please ask at reception for more details. Patients registered with the practice must normally live within the practice boundary area. This limitation is present to ensure the practice can provide fast and appropriate emergency care to a patient who falls ill suddenly.
Change of Details
If you change your name, address or telephone number, please inform the practice as soon as possible. It is important to do so as it keeps our records up-to-date. If you move out of the practice area, you may be required to change your doctor.

GP Registration Cards
Access to Healthcare cards were developed last year by SG colleagues and Scottish Public Health Network. They were designed to help the more vulnerable groups such as Gypsy/Travellers, people experiencing homelessness and New Scots when registering with a new GP practice. They also provide contact information for NHS Inform and the Patient Advice and Support Service.
