Register with us as a New Patient

How to Register

We welcome new patients. All our patients are registered with the Biggar Medical Practice and not with an individual doctor. If your details change at anytime you should inform us by completing the change of details form.

Acceptance on to the list is as at the discretion of the Doctor and we may ask you for proof of identity. (Please refer to our registration policy below and why we ask for this). Please note that your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the Practice.

The Practice boundary extends up to Carmichael Visitor Centre on the West, Dunsyre to the North, Drumelzier to the East, and Tweedsmuir to the South. The Practice area is highlighted in the map shown below. If you need any clarification please contact reception staff on 01899 220383, who will be happy to assist.

There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP, for example you may live too far away. If this is the case simply choose another GP in your local area.

If you are residing in the practice area for less than three months and need to see a doctor you will need to register as a Temporary Resident.
