How to register

To register with the surgery you will need to complete a registration form (GPR) and new patient questionnaire. You can either collect these forms at the surgery or download them from the links below and print them off.

Please complete these forms and hand them into the surgery and provide a copy of photographic ID and proof of address.

Once forms have been received it can take up to 7-10 working days for them to be processed and for you to be registered onto our system.

Temporary registration

If you are ill while away from home and need to see a GP you can receive emergency treatment from a local GP practice as a temporary 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 the practice. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.

To register as a temporary patient at Northcote Surgery, please call the surgery on 0141 339 3211 for more information. You must be staying temporarily in our catchment area:

G11 - 0,5,6,7,9 or G12 - 0,4,6,7,8,9 or G20 - 0,4,6,7,8.

Accountable GP

From 1st April 2015, practices are required to allocate all patients (including children) with a named accountable GP.

The named GP is responsible for the coordination and delivery of all appropriate services, where required based on clinical judgement, to each of their patients.

  • Patients do not need to see their named GP when they book an appointment with the practice.
  • Patients are entitled to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice.
