Register as a New Patient
If you have recently moved to South Queensferry please register as soon as possible. This enables us to request your medical records and have your past medical history should you need to be seen with an acute problem.
To register, complete our new patient registration form AND NHS Scotland form - 'Application to Register Permanently with a General Medical Practice' which can be obtained from reception or downloaded from via the links below.
Prior to registration, if you wish, we can offer a registration appointment with one of our practice nurses and our reception team can arrange this for you once you have completed the forms. This appointment gives us the opportunity to record some basic information about you to aid us in providing care until your medical records are received from your previous practice.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
If you wish to register with us, you can download the forms below. Once both the forms are completed and signed, bring them to the surgery together with two forms of identification - one with a photo and one proving your address.
Once we have the completed, signed forms, our reception staff will arrange a registration appointment for you with a Practice Nurse. This will allow us to request your medical records from your previous practice. Your registration will be complete after your appointment with the Nurse.
Please ensure both sections are completed.
Temporary Patient Registrations
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 contact the surgery on 537 4407 or download and complete our Temporary Patient Registration Form and bring to the surgery.
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.
