New Patient Registration
Closure of list to new patientsAs from 22 October 2018 all Forfar GP practices' lists will be closed. Any new patients seeking to register with a GP in the area should make contact with Practitioner Services Division by one of the methods listed below in the first instance.
The contact details are:
Telephone: 0845 300 1654
Patients can write to:
1 North Esplanade West
Patients will need to provide their name, address and date of birth for themselves, and any family/household members, as they will be kept together.
Practitioner Services will inform each patient/family which GP practice they are being allocated to so they can approach that nominated GP practice to register. Practitioner Services will also notify the GP practice to let them know which patients to expect
It should be noted that this arrangement is for unregistered patients only and patients currently registered with a Forfar GP practice who wish to change will only be actioned subject to exceptional circumstances.
To register as a patient, please bring your medical card to the surgery. If you do not have a medical card, we will give you a form to fill in. Alternatively you can download them below:
New patients (over the age of 16) will be offered a health check. If you are unable to come to the surgery because of ill health, but wish to accept the offer of a health check, this can be arranged as a home visit.
You may consult any of the doctors. You may also express a preference for a particular doctor and we will try to accommodate you, wherever possible. We suggest that if possible you try to see the same doctor for follow–up appointments in any particular episode of illness – but please do not wait if your problem is painful or worrying. If your own doctor is busy, see one of the other partners who can then pass you back to your own doctor later.

Please note that we can only take patients who live within an 8 mile radius of our practice.
Change of Address/Telephone Number
Please inform us immediately if you change your address or telephone number (including ex-directory numbers). You will also need to let the hospital know of any changes if you are attending outpatients or awaiting in-patient treatment.
