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.
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.
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 it here.
If you choose to register with Fochabers Medical Practice you will be required to complete two registration forms. Both can be completed at the practice or downloaded and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org - but will need to be signed in front of a member of staff at the practice on your arrival.
To use these forms on smartphones or tablet devices you must install the free Adobe Acrobat Reader first. Then when you open the file in the smart phone or tablet - make sure you select 'open in Adobe'. Otherwise the form fields cannot be filled.
The first form is an application pro forma downloaded from the NHS inform website, and the second form is some supplementary information required by the practice in order to cover the interim period between application and your medical records arriving with us. This can take some time and we want to be in a position to meet your medical needs as soon as possible. Download the application and supplementary forms as required below:

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.
