New Patient Registration
Individuals and families who are living within the practice boundary may be accepted as patients of Fochabers Medical Practice. Please visit the health centre, bringing two forms of identification, one of which must be photographic, along with confirmation of address, such as a utility bill.
If you have your NHS Medical Card, please bring it with you along with full details of all persons wishing to register. If you are registering your baby, please bring the form from the Registrar. You will be asked to complete a registration form and given an appointment with the practice nurse for your new patient screening. Registration is not complete, and therefore you are not a patient with us, until you attend this screening. Please also bring with you details of any medication which you regularly take.
Changing Your Name, Address or Telephone Number
You can either visit or telephone the Medical Practice or contact us via this website to notify us of any change of details. It is important that your doctor has the correct information. Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
All patients are advised that Fochabers Medical Practice is not an NHS organisation; rather, and like almost all medical practices in Grampian, it is an independent contractor with a contract to NHS Grampian.
Removals from the list of patients absent from the United Kingdom etc
The Health Board must remove a patient from the Contractor’s list of patients where it receives notification that that patient:
- intends to be away from the United Kingdom for a period of at least three months;
- is in Her Majesty’s Forces;
- has been absent from the United Kingdom for a period of more than three months; or
- has died.
