Register as a new patient


Please visit the surgery during normal working hours (08:30 – 18:00) and tell the Clinical Administrator you would like to register.  If you have your medical card, please bring it with you.  If you are registering your baby, please bring the form from the Registrar.  You are free to see any doctor you choose. You have the right to state a preference to receive care from a particular doctor or nurse. The Clinical Administrator will complete the registration form and make a screening appointment for you.

Initial Registration

The initial registration for registering with any NHS Scotland practice can be found at the links below.

It can take a considerable amount of time for your records to reach us, and so in addition to the New Patient registration forms  the information required in the under mentioned questionnaires is required in order to help us better facilitate your immediate needs and will be treated in the strictest confidence.  The forms can be submitted to the practice through this page or they can be completed and signed at the medical practice.

Contractual Obligation

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.


Supplementary Patient Questionnaire Under 16s Questionnaire

You can leave the practice list at any time. This may be because you are moving away but you may wish to move to one of the other local practices. You do not have to tell us you are leaving but it would be nice of you to let us know. In very rare circumstances you may be removed from the list.  This will only occur when we feel that the trust that must be present between you and the doctors no longer exists.
