We welcome anyone who lives within our practice boundary.
Our boundary area covers:
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.
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.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
We do not offer this service at present as we like to be able to book your new patient medical when you come to officially register with us.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.

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 re-register as a temporary patient or 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.
