Registration process during COVID crisis

How to Register as a Patient

From the 14th of December  2020 patients will have an option to download and complete the registration form from NHSInform or NHSNSS and will then email the practice with the attached completed registration form. Patients that don’t have access to a computer to complete the registration form will be advised to phone the GP practice for an alternative method.

Please click here for the registration form

Please complete the registration form and then either email to abbey.prescriptions@remove-this.nhs.scot or post it to us.  Although not absolutely essential, ideally you should also send us 2 forms of ID. At least one should be photographic and at least one should have your address.

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:
DiazepamGabapentinPregabalinLorazepamTemazepamTramadol
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.
