The practice provides general medical services to patients in G31, G32, G40 .2, G40.3 and G40.4 post code areas. If you live within the practice catchment area you are welcome to register with us.
If patients move outside our catchment area we will ask them to register elsewhere. We understand this is sometimes upsetting, especially to patients who have been with us a long time but we do have to set limits to our practice area.
When you attend the Practice to register you will be asked to complete a GP registration form, and new patient questionnaire form, these must be completed before you see the Doctor, so it is advisable to attend at least 10 minutes before your appointment time, so that you can compete the information required.
The receptionist will offer you a new patient appointment. Acceptance on to the list is as at the discretion of the Doctor. We will ask you for proof of identity (Please refer to our registration policy). (Medical Cards are not accepted as proof of identity).
Patients are advised to the read the NHS counter fraud declaration before signing the registration form.
There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP. For example, you may live too far away. If this is the case simply choose another GP in your local area.
Once you’ve been accepted as a patient, your medical records will be transferred to the Practice and you’ll be sent a new medical card.
Your medical records may take up to several weeks to arrive at the Practice.
In accordance with Greater Glasgow & Clyde health Board recommendations, all new patients should present two forms of identification which proves residency and authenticates their identity.

This can be either a tenancy agreement, utility bill or bank statement in the name of the person wishing to register. It must be dated within the previous 3 months.
As a new patient, you will be offered a registration appointment with our health care assistant. The registration appointment will enable us to gather some necessary baseline information which may prove to be important should you need to see a doctor prior to us receiving your notes, as it could take some time for your medical record to come through from your previous GP,
