The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. Click here to see if your address falls within our area. To register with the practice you can complete forms online and bring them in or pick them up from the Reception Desk at the Health Centre . Please also bring some identification with you (driving licence, passport or any utility bill), and if you are on any repeat medications bring a copy of your re-order prescription form from your previous practice.
If you have not completed one online, a new patient questionnaire will also be given to you along with a practice leaflet.
The practice area extends roughly to a nine mile radius around Elgin. A detailed map of the practice boundary is also displayed in the reception area.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

Online appointment booking is the most used GP online service. Patients avoid queues at the practice or long waits on the phone. As a result it eases pressure on busy reception desks. It’s especially popular over the weekend so there are fewer calls on Monday mornings.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
