The method of new patient registration has changed. If you live in the practice catchment area, see below, are not registered with any other local GP surgery and will be resident in the catchment area for more than three months please continue.
The West End Medical Practice is limited to the number of patients we can safely register. To register for our practice please download the attached new patient registration and health questionnaire forms, it is critical that you complete both of these forms, failure to do so will result in a delay in completing your registration
It is important that you, or your representative, should complete as much of the information as possible. It can take up to 28 days to register new patients.
For new registrations from the same household please send separate forms at the same time. Applying for registration does NOT guarantee acceptance. If you have been rejected or we require further information a member of the new registrations team will contact you.
If you are unable to complete the online registration please contact the Reception Team on 0131 225 5220 for further information.
Information regarding all surgeries in your area can be obtained from the NHS Inform Services Directory or by telephoning the Health Authority Enquiries on 0800224488.
Dependents of currently registered patients living at the same address and new births will still be accepted without adhering to our limited place access.
Trouble finding a GP? Write to PSD – Medical, PO BOX 17363, Edinburgh, EH12 1ET. They will be able to assist you in finding an available Practice.
