Register with us as a New Patient

Welcome

Please visit the surgery during normal working hours (08:00 – 18:00) and tell the Clinical Administrator you would like to register.  If you have your medical card, please bring it with you. If you are registering your baby, please bring the form from the Registrar.  Alternatively please use the links provided to register online. Please ensure that you complete both the main application form and also the supplementary questionnaire for each person. Without both forms, we are unable to process your request.

If you will require repeat medication within the next couple of weeks, please ensure that you submit the details of the medication on the supplementary questionnaire and details of your previous practice so that a request for your medication notes can be made. Please note that your actual medical records can take several weeks to be received.

Acceptance on to the list at Fochaber’s Medical Practice is at the discretion of the Doctor.

Practice Area

Initial Registration

The initial registration for registering with any NHS Scotland practice can be found at the links below.

It can take a considerable amount of time for your records to reach us, and so in addition to the New Patient registration forms  the information required in the under mentioned questionnaires is required in order to help us better facilitate your immediate needs and will be treated in the strictest confidence.  The forms can be submitted to the practice through this page or they can be completed and signed at the medical practice.

Contractual Obligation

All patients are advised that Fochabers Medical Practice is not an NHS organisation; rather, and like almost all medical practices in Grampian, it is an independent contractor with a contract to NHS Grampian.

Removals from the list of patients absent from the United Kingdom etc

The Health Board must remove a patient from the Contractor’s list of patients where it receives notification that that patient:

  • intends to be away from the United Kingdom for a period of at least three months;
  • is in Her Majesty’s Forces;
  • has been absent from the United Kingdom for a period of more than three months; or
  • has died.

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.

It is is important to note that you can only permanently register with a GP practice if you’re staying in the area for more than 3 months.
