View Practice Area Map

When registering

Please bring your NHS medical card (if you have one) to the practice and those of any other persons registering with you. You will be asked to complete an NHS GP registration form for each person registering with the Practice. In addition, all new patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire, allowing us to provide medical care in the interim period, while your medical records are transferred from your old practice to this one.

When registering for the first time

You may make an appointment with the nurse for a new patient medical. New patients who are on repeat medication will need to make an appointment with one of the doctors before requesting medication.

Moving from another practice in Perth

Patients wishing to change from a GP Practice in Perth to the Red Practice will need to make an appointment with one of the GP Partners first to discuss the reason for wishing to change doctor.

If you are registering with the NHS for the first time in the UK

You will need to produce a passport, proof of address and documentation to show that they are entitled to work or study in the UK. We will make a copy of these documents for our records.

Students should also provide course information, which includes a start and finish date.

Visas/Permits – Overseas visitors should have appropriate UKBA (UK Border Agency) documentation to show that they are entitled to work, study or get married in the UK. Forms IS96 for asylum seekers, ARC or SAL.

Preference of Practitioner

Patients are registered with the practice, not an individual GP. For administrative reasons your medical card will be issued in the name of one of the doctors; however, you can at any time express a preference for a particular doctor, for either all of your medical needs or on a case-by-case basis. This preference will be recorded in your medical notes and we will 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.

Registering as a Temporary Patient

NHS patients visiting Perth and residing within the practice catchment area, may register with the practice as a temporary patient if medical attention is required. We will require full personal details as well as the details of the patient’s own doctor.

You may be seen as a temporary patient for up to 3 months. We will pass any details of medical treatment on to your permanent doctor so your medical records can be updated.

Moving out of the Practice Area

If you move out of the practice area, you will need to register with a new practice as soon as you move.
