How To Register With Us

From the week commencing 23rd March 2020 we will continue to take on 25 new patients per week but the registration day and time slot has changed.

We ask patients to download and complete registration forms from our website prior to coming in to register and submit them to us along with ID and proof of address on:

WEDNESDAY 12:00-14:00 ONLY

Registrations are strictly on a first come first served basis and applicants should not attend the practice before 12pm.  Anybody who does arrive early will not be dealt with until the allocated time slot and you will not necessarily be dealt with first.  Please bear in mind that registration time is busy so please be patient, staff will be working through the requests as quickly and safely as possible.

We do not accept patients from surrounding GP practices.  If you have a GP in the area we will be unable to register you unless you have moved address and your new address is no longer covered by your current GP practice.  

To register with Springwell Medical Centre, all applicants must provide ID and proof of address (proving you are residing in our catchment area).  Each applicant must fill in a GPR and a Medical Questionnaire - links to these forms are below.  If you would like to sing up for our Patinet Online Services please fill in this form also.  For more information on Patient Online Services please see the tab on the left hand side.

If you would like to register with us, please click on the links below, complete and bring them in person - please do not post them.  Please remember to bring the necessary documentation with you as we cannot accept your application without these documents.

Once we receive your completed application we will have you on our system in a minimum of two working days. Please note you will be unable to make any appointment until your application has been fully processed.

Temporary and Private Registrations
If you are staying in our area for less than three months and are acutely unwell we may be able to see you as a Temporary Patient if you are residing in another part of the UK.  Please see our Temporary and Private patient registration form below.  We do not register people temporarily "just in case" you need seen, we will only regsiter you IF you need seen.  If you have a GP surgery in Edinburgh but are staying temporarily in our area then we would expect you to attend the surgery you are registered with.  Similarly if you have ran out of repeat medication then you should also contact your own surgery regardless of where it is in the UK. GP surgeries can pass information to our local pharmacy so you can receive the medication you need.

Please note we must see proof of residency in the UK in order to register you for NHS treatment.  If you are not resident in the UK but resident in an EU country you need to provide us with your passport/ID card and a valid EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) from the country you live in.  If you can not provide the details we require then you can be seen but will need to pay as a private patient.

If you are from a non EU country then you can only be seen on the NHS if you have a valid Visa and this must be a worker, student, residency or dependant visa.  Holiday or Visitor visas do not suffice therefore any consultation and treatment will be chargable.

If you are seen as a Temporary Patient and are refferred to the hospital by the GP, the hospital may charge you for the treatment or procedure carried out.
