New Patient Registration

You must live within the Practice’s boundary area which consists of: Ormiston, Pencaitland, Buxley, New Winton, New Town, Nisbet, Middlemains, East Saltoun, West Saltoun, Old Duncrahill, Dodridge Farm, West Byres, and Cousland Park.

If in doubt, please check with our Reception staff. To register, NHS regulations require you to show:

  • Your passport, or birth certificate (photographic ID where possible); and
  • Proof of your address (for example, a utility bill).

Our Reception staff will ask you to complete a New Patient Questionnaire that asks for some important information regarding your previous medical history and current approved recurrent medications. By completing this form, it gives our Doctors and Nurses important information that they can use to provide you with care whilst we are waiting for your medical records to be sent from your previous Practice. Please find below a link for the Practice Registration Forms and New Patient Questionnaire that you can download and complete:

Please bring these completed forms along with 2 forms of identification to Reception to register with our Practice. All our patients are registered with Ormiston Medical Practice and not with an individual GP. However, patients will have a named GP on their medical record for administration purposes, but they can consult with any Doctor, Nurse Practitioner or Practice Nurse at the Practice. However, we do recommend that you try to see the same Doctor, Nurse Practitioner or Practice Nurse for most things on most occasions if you possibly can. He or she will be the Doctor, Nurse Practitioner and or Practice Nurse who is most familiar with your situation, the tests that you have had, the medication that you are on, and the medication that you have been on in the past, but as previously explained, all your medical consultations are on the computer for continuity of care, so please do not be overly concerned if your usual clinician is not available for consultation.

Changing Your Personal Details

Please inform our Reception staff if you change your name, address and/or telephone number in order for your records to be amended as soon as possible. This can be done in writing by letter or in person at the surgery by completing the form below. Please note that a change of address may mean that you are outside the Practice boundary area, and that you may need to register with a Medical Practice nearer to your home. Our Reception staff will advise you on this.
