Register with the surgery

Before filling out a registration form, check you are in our catchment area.

Before registering, it is important that we point out that the Doctors and prescribing clinicians do not routinely or regularly prescribe the following types of medications:

  • Sleeping tablets or Tranquilisers
  • Preparations such as Zopiclone, Diazepam, Nitrazepam, Temazepam or
  • other Benzodiazepines
  • Pregabalin
  • Tramadol
  • High-dose opioids including Fentanyl, Oxycodone and Oramorph (morphine liquid)

Our Doctors offer a gradual reduction programme for patients on such medications. The programme is medically recognised as safe and effective and will occur over a maximum of 6 weeks. By registering, you will accept that you will participate in this programme and wish to abstain from these medications.

Registering with the surgery

To register with the surgery either:

  • Fill out an online registration form
  • Pick up a registration form available from either of our receptions between 9am – 6pm
  • Download and print a copy of the registration form to complete at home – Available HERE

When you register, it’s not essential, but it is helpful to have your NHS number. You can use the NHS website to find your NHS number.

If you would like to register for online services, you will also need to bring one form of current photo ID (e.g., Driver’s License, Passport, Student ID, work or travel card) when you return your completed forms.

It is important that you inform us if any of your details change at any time whilst you are registered at the practice.

We recommend that new patients undertake a health check with a practice nurse.

Named GP

All patients at Glenroyd Medical have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating their care.

Your named doctor will be allocated to you by the practice. You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.

If you have a preference and would like to request a particular doctor at the practice to be your named GP please talk to one of our receptionists.

Temporary patients

If you are not registered with the surgery you will be unable to see one of our doctors unless you have a serious emergency. In most other cases, calling 111 is a better option.

If you are not registered but need treatment at the surgery you will need to complete a temporary registration form.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This means you can be registered with our practice and remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with our practice.
