New Patient Registration
If you wish to register as a patient of Brunton Place Surgery you need to be living within the practice boundaries and entitled to register as an NHS patient. Registration forms are available at reception from 8am on Tuesday mornings only, forms are limited. You would need to complete the form yourself, or have someone complete it on your behalf. All patients who register must provide proof of their address and ID, please refer to the advice sheet provided with your registration form. When the forms are completed please return them to reception. We only accept forms handed in by a prospective patient, so that the forms can be checked by a receptionist in their presence.
Once registered as a new patient with the practice, patients are welcome to book an appointment with our practice nurse for a new patient health check up and review. If you prefer a particular doctor, e.g. female for a female patient, we will note this and do our best to respect your choice. However, not all the doctors in the practice provide all services and specific doctors may not be immediately available.
Brunton Place Surgery Currently has a restriction on the number of new patients we can register each week. Please be advised that this will be STRICTLY limited to 30 per week which are available from 8am on Tuesday mornings.
Once all 30 registration forms have been handed out we will NOT issue any more.
Change of Address or Telephone Number
It is very important to advise us of any change of address or telephone number as failure to do so could cause unnecessary delay in an emergency. Failure to keep us informed may also result in Lothian Health Board removing your name from our practice list without your knowledge and this will also cause unnecessary delay in re-registration and obtaining your medical records. If you move out-with the practice area you must register with another doctor. We can provide information about how to find a new practice.
