When you want to register with a new GP practice, you’ll need to follow these steps to ensure that your new GP practice has all your medical history and your medical records.
If this is your first registration with a GP practice in the UK, medical records from outwith the United Kingdom won’t be traced.
Acceptance on to the list is as at the discretion of the Doctor and we may ask you for proof of identity. (Please refer to our registration policy below and why we ask for this). Please note that your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the Practice.
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.
You can only register with a GP practice if you’re staying in the area for more than 3 months. If you’re not, you may still be treated, but as a Temporary Resident. Please call the Practice 0131 332 7696 if you are seeking care as a temporary resident.

Step 2: Upload scans of photo identity and proof of address
Please deliver to the practice copies of two forms of your identity.
