Practice registration – forms and how-to guide.

if you are looking to register as an Eyemouth Medical Practice patient, please be aware that BOTH registration forms 1 & 2 below must be completed and returned to the practice.

Registering with the practice

When registering, please bring identification with you – either your NHS medical card, birth certificate or photo ID to the practice and those of any other persons registering with you. You will be asked to complete a registration form for each person registering with the practice. In addition, all patients will be asked to complete a new patient questionnaire, allowing us to provide medical care in the interim period, while your medical records are transferred from your old practice. If you move out of the practice area, you will need to register with a new practice as soon as you move. We can provide information about how to find a new practice. Patients are registered with the practice, not an individual GP. Your medical card will be issued bearing the practice name. However your practice record and prescription slip will show the name of a specific nominated doctor. You can, independently of this, choose to see any doctor of your choice. We will do our best to respect your choice. However, not all the doctors in the practice provide all services and specific doctors may not be immediately available, especially if they work part-time.
