Our list is currently full. Please go to www.nhsinform.scot/ or call 0800 224488 for information on all practices who are registering new patients.
Practice boundaries for all GPs are now more clearly defined. If you move out of our area (see below) difficulties can arise if emergency calls are necessary during peak traffic times. In these instances we would ask you to register with a doctor closer to your home. To do this take your medical card to the new surgery you have chosen or fill in a registration form there. We regret having to take this step but we will be delighted to care for you if you should move back into our area.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
