The Practice list is currently full. If you require to register with a Doctor please contact Practitioner Services
PSD Medical, PO Box 17363, Edinburgh, EH12 1ET. Tel: 0845 300 1661
If Practitioner Services allocate you to our Practice you will be asked to complete a new patient questionnaire and attend a clinician (usually the Practice nurse) for a new patient medical. This will allow us to provide medical care in the interim period while your medical records are being transferred from your old practice to this one. If you move out of the practice area, you will have to register with a new practice as soon as you move.
Patients registering with the Practice will be asked to bring some form of identification with them to their registration appointment with the Practice nurse.
This can be:
- Medical Card from last GP
- Utility bill with name and current address
- Driving licence with current address
Registration will be completed when patients attend their registration appointment.
Registration may not take place if proof of identity has not been established.
Who is your Doctor? Expressing Preferences
Patients are registered with the practice, not an individual GP. Your medical card will be issued in the name of one of the doctors who will supervise your care, however you can at any time express a preference for a practitioner. This preference will be recorded in your medical notes. Whilst the practice will always try to comply with your requests on all occasions, it may not always be possible.
The Partnership of Drs Borland, Lamb, Green & Riddle is a full equal partnership with no restrictions of limitations. The partnership is contracted to Forth Valley NHS to provide general medical services to patients registered with our practice and temporary residents within our practice boundary (as agreed with Forth Valley NHS Board). We also provide immediately necessary treatment for any person not registered with the practice who has a medical emergency within our practice boundary.
