Registering patients

Our Practice covers Glasgow postcode area G44 4** & G44 5** and Lanarkshire postcode area G73 2** & G73 3** only.

To register as a patient at the Practice, you may call in to reception at your convenience. An application to register permanently with a general medical practice (GPR) form and a new patient medical history questionnaire. The GPR forms must be completed and signed for all family members.

We will also need 2 forms of Identification, one must have your current address on it.

When joining the Practice you are registering with The Practice and not with an individual GP. However, you may ask to see any doctor and the Practice shall endeavour to comply with your preference.

PLEASE NOTE THE PRACTICE NOW TAKES ON NEW PATIENTS ON A ROTA BASIS WITH DR KHAN'S PRACTICE. PLEASE CONTACT RECEPTION FOR MORE INFORMATION.

New Patients over 16 years

Upon completion of these forms, one of our receptionists will make you a registration medical appointment with the practice nurse. Please bring your urine sample to this appointment along with all recently prescribed medication.

Change to Catchment Area - Current Patients

In May 2018, the practice changed its catchment boundary area to those stated above. Kings Park Surgery believe that it is in the patient's best interest and to provide a better standard of care, that all patients who have a postcode outside the catchment area should change to a GP closer to their home address.

Currently registered patients, living out with the catchment area who then change to another address that is still outside the catchment area, will be asked to change GP and removed from the Practice List.

For Example, patient living in G72 moves to another G72 address will need to re-register with another practice.

Please contact the Surgery if you wish further information

Temporary Registration

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 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.
