Registering with Us

Practice Catchment Area

We accept new patients who will be permanently resident in Paisley for more than three months.

We accept patients from the following postcodes: PA1, PA2, PA3 (excluding Linwood).

How to Register as a Patient

You will need to complete the new patient registration form (GPR), and the new patient health questionnaire, both of which can be downloaded and printed from this page (See the Registration Forms section). Please bring the following documents with you if possible (documents marked * are ESSENTIAL);

  • Completed new patient registration form *
  • Completed new patient health questionnaire *
  • Proof of Identity *
    (We require at least 2 forms of ID. At least one must be photographic and at least one must have your address)
  • NHS card
  • Drug re-order slip from you previous practice (if applicable)

Until you are fully registered with the practice, you will remain registered with your previous GP.

Until we receive confirmation of your past medical history and medication we will not be able to issue any repeat prescriptions.  You should ask your previous GP for a supply.

Prescribing Protocol for New Patients

It is our policy to review your medication and offer dose reduction where appropriate to ensure effective and safe prescribing, particularly drugs that can be harmful or addictive. These include:

  • Diazepam
  • Gabapentin
  • Pregabalin
  • Lorazepam
  • Temazepam
  • Tramadol

By registering with us you are agreeing to work with us to make sure your medication is appropriate for you.

Temporary Residents

Patients visiting from another area in the UK for a period of less than 3 months, and who become unwell, are entitled to be seen as a temporary resident. You will be able to make an appointment in the same way as one of our normally registered patients.

If you only require a supply of your regular medication and you are normally resident in Scotland, it may be possible to obtain this from a local pharmacy under the "unscheduled care" scheme. This will avoid any delay whilst waiting for a GP appointment. If you are ordinarily resident in England Wales or Northern Ireland, it still may be possible for a pharmacist to liaise directly with your usual GP in order to arrange medication.
