New Patient Registration
When registering, please bring your NHS medical card to the practice. If you do not have a medical card you will be asked to complete a registration form for each person registering. Two forms of identification are required, one photographic identification and the other a utility bill or similar to confirm residence.

Please be aware that if you reside in Arbroath unfortunately we are unable to take on any new registrations unless you live at the same address as a family member who is already registered with ourselves.
In addition, you will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and all patients will be offered a new patient check with the practice nurse, allowing us to provide medical care in the interim period, while your medical records are transferred from your old practice to your new GP.
Patients are registered to the practice, not a specific GP.
If you are on repeat medication, you must see the doctor first before a prescription can be issued.
Changes to Personal Details
If you move house, please let us know. If the move is still within our practice catchment area we would be happy to continue to provide your care. Please also inform the practice if you change your telephone number, whether it is a landline number or your mobile number. Some hospital departments use telephone numbers to contact patients rather than letters.
Period of Non-Registration with a GP Practice
Where a patient is not registered with a GP practice for any reason, the period of non-registration may invalidate specific policies e.g. a travel insurance policy:
Some companies ask that you are:
- A permanent resident of the United Kingdom
- Registered with a Medical Practitioner in the United Kingdom
- Travelling from and returning to the United Kingdom
