How to register

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.

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.
