New Patients

The Practice is happy to register anyone who lives in the G73 area or has recently moved into the area.

All new patients will be required to complete a registration form and a medical questionnaire.   Please click into this link to download the relevant forms which must be fully ocmpleted and returned to us by post or email to enquiries.overtoun@nhs.net.  Full updated registration form June 2020

Where possible we ask that you provide us with identification  – preferably photographic but this is not essential.  We must see proof of your address and would ask that you attach a copy of this to your registration form wherever possible.  You may redact any private information from your letter or bill  – we only need to see your name and address.

Babies are the exception where a Birth Certificate will suffice as long as Parent/s are registered with the Practice.

New patients are invited to attend for a free health check with our Practice Nurse or Healthcare Support Worker where possible but this may not always happen.

Please note that if you fail to attend your new patient Nurse appointment or your first GP appointment, your registration will not be accepted.

Preference of Practitioner
Patients are registered with the practice, not an individual GP. For administrative reasons your medical card will be issued in the name of one of the doctors; however, you can at any time express a preference for a particular doctor, for either all of your medical needs or on a case-by-case basis.  This preference will be recorded in your medical notes and we will do our best to respect your choice.  Do remember, though, that not all the doctors in the practice provide all services and specific doctors may not be immediately available.


TEMPORARY PATIENTS – If you are staying with a patient of ours, require medical attention and plan to register for less than 3 months, please complete the following temporary resident form.  Temporary Resident Form
