The Green PracticeGovan Health Centre 5 Drumoyne Road Glasgow, G51 4BJTel: 0141 531 8460
We are happy to accept most patients within G51, G52, G53, G41 and PA1 Ralston and PA4 Dean Park areas.
When you present yourself to register you will be given a registration document to complete. We also have the facility to register online (see "Registering Online" tab above).
You will then be offered a telephone consultation with the Health Care Support Worker and/or a GP if appropriate to have a new patient check-up. This is not compulsory but will enable us to collect necessary medical information from you whilst awaiting you medical records from your previous GP.
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.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
To register online with The Green Practice please complete the Pre-registration Form and Online Medical Questionnaire For New Patients below. When you have completed all of the details on each of the forms, click on the "Send" button to mail your forms to us. It is important that you complete both forms fully as it can take some time for us to receive your medical records from your previous GP. When your forms have been received and processed we will be in touch by email to advise that you are now registered.
Online Medical Questionnaire For New Patients
Note that by sending the form you will be transmitting information about your self across the Internet and although every effort is made to keep this information secure, no guarantee can be offered in this respect.
Alternatively you may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.
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 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.
