Register as a New Patient
New patients are welcomed by the Practice.
Patients wishing to join the practice list will be required to complete a registration form and a new patient medical questionnaire. Both of these can be downloaded using the links below.
Completed forms are required for each family member joining the practice.
Once completed, these should be handed in to the surgery.
Along with the completed forms, patients are also requested to provide two forms of ID if possible, one of which should be photographic such as a passport or driving licence, the other being proof of residence such as a recent utility bill.
The practice catchment area covers the whole of Uddingston, Bothwell and Viewpark. Click here to see a map and postcode information.
We are unable to register patients from outside of these areas.
Please contact reception if you have any questions about the registration process.
Temporary Patient Registrations
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
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 simply contact the local practice you wish to use. 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.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. 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.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
