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 25 per week which are available from 8am on Tuesday mornings.
Once all 25 registration forms have been handed out we will NOT issue any more.
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.

A Patient Guide to GP Services
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. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
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 list 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.
