The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area.

Please contact reception for further information.
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 request that all new patients wishing to join the practice undertake a New Patient Health Check with a nurse or in some cases with a doctor. This will provide us with valuable information about your health needs whilst we await the transfer of your medical records from your previous doctor. Please do not wait until you need to see a doctor before you register with the practice.
When you apply to join the practice you will be offered an appointment for your health check, and you will also be given a short questionnaire to complete, which you should bring along to the appointment.
A simple screening medical examination (including measurement of blood pressure, height and weight) will be performed and health advice given.
If you wish to register please call in at the surgery and collect the new patient registration form and questionnaire.
Alternatively you may print them off below and send or drop them into the surgery prior to your first visit.
When you register you will also be asked to book a new patient healthcheck appointment with the Practice Nurse.
Please complete a registration form and questionnaire for each person. There is a separate questionnaire for children under 16 and newborn babies, for everyone else please complete the general form.
If you are currently taking repeat medication, it is helpful to include a copy of a recent repeat prescription form so that we can ensure that your medication is updated onto your new record.

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 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.

From 1st April 2015 onwards Practices were required, under the GMS contract, to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients, including children.
All patients of Annandale Medical Centre already have a named GP allocated to them upon registration. Your named GP is your registered GP however this does not stop you from seeing any of the other GP's within the Practice. If you are unsure of who your named GP is details can be found on your repeat prescription form, on the letter received from the Registration Authority when your registered or by contacting the surgery.
New patients of the Practice will be informed of their named GP on receipt of their registration form. This will be told to you within 21 days of you registering with the Practice.
If you were registered with us before 1st April 2015 and were aged over 75 or took part in the Unplanned Emergency Admissions scheme you will have already been notified in writing of your named accountable GP – this named GP will remain the same and will not change.
Should you express a wish to change your named GP please write to the Practice Manager requesting the change.
Please remember that although you have a named accountable GP you can see and discuss any health concerns with any GP in the Practice and are encouraged to do so.
The Accessible Information Standard aims to ensure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss are given information that they can easily read and understand.
Please make the reception staff or the Doctors or Nurses aware if you require information in a different format or if you need support. Wherever possible we will provide information in alternative formats such as large print or Braille, or arrange an interpreter for consultations if required.
