Registering As A Patient


The Old Machar Medical Practice is currently full.

At present the Old Machar Medical Practice (both King Street and Jesmond branch) is at maximum capacity and are currently NOT in an immediate position to register new patients unless they are new to the area and do not already have access to a GP practice.   Other local practices continue to have capacity for registration at this time.

For those patients already registered with a local GP please contact the Aberdeen City Primary Care team using the details below and they will either:  1. Put you on the waiting list for this practice, or 2. Provide you with details of other practices in your surrounding the area that do have the capacity to take on new patients.


The Primary Care Team can be contacted by email or by telephone.

This process is only in place for people who are choosing to move practice. If individuals have moved from one part of the city to another, or are newly arrived in Aberdeen, they will be registered as normal. This is temporary measure, which will be kept under regular review. 


A Frequently Asked Questions guide has been produced to help you understand what is happening. It is available to view here.

Registration Requirements

Any person permanently resident within our practice boundary may apply for registration with the practice. When registering, it is essential that we see two forms of identification. One form of identification should be photographic where possible or a birth certificate, and the other form of identification must confirm your current address e.g. utility bill, rental agreement, or bank statement. This is a requirement for ALL persons registering with the practice. You must complete a registration form for each person registering with the Practice.

Preference of Practitioner 

Since April 2004, all patients in the UK are now legally registered with the practice and not an individual GP. For administrative and continuity reasons however the Old Machar Medical Practice has decided to retain the practice of assigning each patient to a "Usual Doctor" who is ultimately responsible for their medical care.  You can at any time express a preference for a particular doctor, for either all of your medical needs or on a case-by-case basis.  We will do our best to respect your choice however, not all the doctors in the practice provide all services and specific doctors may not be immediately available.  The practice retains the right to insist that certain conditions/patients should be seen by specific practice personnel.
