New Patientsregister_now

We welcome anyone who lives within our practice boundary.

Our boundary area covers:

  • Patients resident anywhere in Bonnyrigg
  • Patients in the houses opposite Victoria Park Newtongrange (not in the main village of Newtongrange, which is covered by other GP Practices.)
  • Eskbank
  • Part of Loanhead
  • Lasswade

Please note we are no longer accepting new patients from Gorebridge, Newtongrange or Dalkeith as there are more local GP practices that cover these areas and the number of new houses in Bonnyrigg itself has increased substantially.

If you are in any doubt whether your address is within our boundary area, the reception staff will check your post code with the Practice Manager.

When registering we will firstly ask you for identification in the form of a driving licence or passport, and proof of address. This applies to those over 16.

A member of the reception team will ask you for your personal information and you will then be given an appointment with the one of the nursing team. When you attend that appointment you will sign your GPR registration form and data protection form. After this the doctor will review your file and update any clinical information and countersign your GPR. It is at this stage your notes from your old practice will be requested.   When they arrive your file is summarised and the information placed on the computer.

Changing your address and telephone number

It is important that the information that we hold for you is kept up-to-date in case we need to contact you. If you change your address or phone number please give us the details as soon as possible.

If you move outwith our boundary area we will have to ask you to register with a local practice nearer to your home address.
