Registering With The Practice
Practice Boundary Change
The health board have granted permission for the practice boundary to be reduced with immediate effect from 16/04/19. Kilsyth Medical Partnership will no longer accept new patients from Cumbernauld or Twechar going forward. We will continue to accept new patients from Kilsyth and the surrounding areas including Banton, Kelvinhead, Queenzieburn and Croy.
Patients currently registered with the practice who live in Cumbernauld or Twechar will be unaffected at the current time but should ANY patient change their address to out with our new practice boundary (i.e. Twechar or Cumbernauld), they will need to register with another practice.
- Any patient living within the practice boundary of Kilsyth, Croy, Banton, Kelvinhead and Queenzieburn can register with the practice.
- We kindly ask any patient intending to register with the practice to do so as soon as possible as it can take several weeks or even months for patient records to be transferred from a previous GP practice. Please do not wait until you are unwell or needing a prescription.
- To register please collect the registration forms from the reception desk or print off from the link below and return once completed.
- All patients will be asked to produce photographic proof of identification (e.g. driving licence, passport) AND to provide proof of current address when registering (e.g. utility bill). We ask this to ensure that you are living within the practice boundary.
- When registering a newborn baby, please attach the 'NHS in Scotland' form provided by the Registrar as proof of identification.
- When registering children who do not have photographic proof of identification, please attach a copy of their birth certificate. (If you cannot provide a copy, please bring the original along when returning the forms and the Receptionist will copy it for you).
- We cannot accept postal applications. The receptionist must witness proof of identification or your forms will not be processed.
- Under the current General Medical Contract all patients are registered with the practice and NOT an individual GP.
- All patients will be allocated to a GP on their medical card but this is for administrative purposes only. All patients can consult with any GP in the practice.
