Join the practice

If you live within the practice catchment area - postcode G62 (except Mugdock Village which falls under the Forth Valley Health Board and as such we are unable to accept patients from this area) and G64 (Torrance area only) and wish to register, please come along and complete the necessary paperwork. Please bring proof of identity eg passport or photo driving licence and an official letter with your address on it.

When you register you will also be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire, as it may take some time before we get your records from your previous GP and it is important that we have some background medical information on you.

Access

The practice is conveniently located near the station, accessed through the underpass and from the main street.

We have a small car park to the rear of the premises accessed via Buchanan Street and Grange Avenue. Parking is limited and we ask you to remove your vehicle as soon as your visit to the surgery is complete.

People with Disabilities

Access for our patients with disabilities is provided on the level from the disabled spaces accessed via a side gate at the bottom of Hillhead street.

If you need to use this disabled parking please arrange your appoinments outwith school delivery and collection times as Hillhead Street becomes congested with small children and their parents.

Temporary 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.
