New Patient Registration
How to Register
If you are living in our practice area and qualify for General Medical Services, reception staff will provide you with a practice leaflet/introductory letter to the practice. You may be asked for proof of your address and photographic ID. You will be asked to complete the registration forms and make an appointment to see our practice nurse. At this appointment we will help you complete the section of the forms relating to your medical information/history. This is to help us gather important medical history on you and your family.
Follow this link to a printable version of our registration form:
Completing this form DOES NOT register you with our practice; you must first come to the surgery to book and then attend a registration appointment with our practice nurse.
We are currently registering new students and will continue to do this in the coming weeks so there is no need to rush as we will accept your application. To make it easier for you, and for us, please try not to come to the practice in large groups as we are a family practice and reception staff are busy dealing with patients attending the doctor, making appointments, ordering medication etc.
Take the pack of forms away with you and complete ALL of the forms before returning with them and your proof of address. We will also ask to see your matriculation card (student ID card) to record the date of expiry.
If you move out of our practice area we will not be able to keep you on our list. You can find details of local practices by contacting Practitioner Services on 0131 275 7958.
The practice is part of the University of Edinburgh and several of the doctors divide their time between seeing patients, teaching medical students and carrying out research. All of the doctors work part-time in the practice. As we are a group practice you may see any of the doctors. The whole practice team meet regularly to exchange information in order to provide the best possible service and continuity of care to our patients.
