Register as a New Patient
When you register with the Practice you will be asked to fill out a registration form and you will be given a new patient appointment so that a brief history of previous illnesses can be taken and routine tests can be carried out - blood pressure etc. You will also be asked to provide identification (eg a passport) and proof of address. Please tell us immediately if you need to see a GP to set up any medication you receive on repeat prescription.
Apart from Dr Brandl, who is based at Glenlivet and works two days per week, our other GP’s and nurses are based at Grantown Medical Practice. The GP’s usually work one day per week at Glenlivet with the nurses providing clinics as necessary on a regular basis.
This covers the area around Glenlivet, Ballindalloch and the surrounding villages. The Practice population is around 600 patients.
Temporary Patient Registrations
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.
