The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area.
Our practice area covers Newarthill, Carfin, Holytown, Calderbank and New Stevenston. If you have just moved into the area and wish to join the practice please enquire at reception.
You will be given a pre-registration appointment, medical questionnaire and Vision Online Repeat Prescription ordering authorisation (if needed) to complete to bring along with you when you attend your appointment. This is to provide information to us until we receive your medical records from your previous GP.
If you are unable to hand in forms then the registration process can be completed online. Please phone the practice 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 the guide below.

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.

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, if the GP feels your request is appropriate and there is appointment availability. 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 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.
