New Patients

New Patient Registration

The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area.

To register as a patient ask at reception for details. Newly registered patients will be invited for a consultation within 6 months of registering.

If you wish to choose to see a particular doctor for some or all medical conditions please let the receptionist know and she will note this in your medical records. We will always try to ensure that this is possible, but there may be occasions when it is not.

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

To register with Castlehead Medical Centre you will need to call in and pick up an NHS family doctor services registration form. As it takes a while for your medical records to transfer to our practice, we also ask you to fill out a new patient health questionnaire. We will also provide you with a practice information pack together with information on patient online access and your shared medical records. You will need to complete the registration forms for each member of your household.

Alternatively, you can download the forms below:

Online Services

Patient Online Access Application Form

Once you have completed the forms, bring them in to reception so that we can register you, and where appropriate, send for your old records. When you attend with your registration forms, you MUST bring proof of identity with you – one photo ID and one proof of address.

Every patient registering with the practice will have the opportunity of a new patient consultation. The appointment gives you the chance to meet us, have your health checked, and bring to light any ongoing medical problems or important past medical history, including continuing your medication. Your appointment may be with your doctor, a practice nurse or health care assistant.
