Drs McCartney, Addiscott, Green & Thorman

How to register

In order to register with the practice, you should complete the Practice Registration Form by clicking on the link below.
Please note that you register with our practice not a specific GP, and you must live in a postcode area of PA14 or PA15 2.

Practice Registration Form (link to Registration Form)

You can download the form and complete before sending, as an attachment, to ggc.gp86271clinical@nhs.scot, or print it out and post it to Dr McCartney and Partners, The Health Centre, 2 Bay Street, Port Glasgow, PA14 5EW.

When you register, an appointment will be arranged for you to see the practice nurse so that they can do a health screen, which assists the doctor in his/her first consultation with you.

At that time of registration, please also provide details of any medication that you take, when either emailing your registration form or when you hand in/post it.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Anyone in Scotland, whether a resident or overseas visitor, may access primary care services at a GP practice without charge. No documents are required to register with a GP.
However, to facilitate the registration process we would request that at least one form of identification is produced.
This helps to ensure the correct matching of your details to any existing NHS record, enabling previous medical records to transfer smoothly between practices.
We appreciate your assistance in this matter.

Types of acceptable photographic evidence:

  • Passport
  • Drivers Licence
  • Official ID card from Public Services body; or
  • Student matriculation card (current year)

Other documents that are acceptable are:

  • Recent utility bill (within last 3 months)
  • Council Tax document
  • Television Licence
  • Payslips (within the last 3 months)
  • Rent book/agreement (Public Body or Private Landlord)
  • Bank Statement (Name and address section only required)
  • Solicitors Letter (Clearly showing name and address)

If unable to provide any of the above, then one of the following would be of help:

  • Birth Certificate
  • Marriage Certificate
  • Divorce Annulment Papers

If you are unable to provide any documentation, then we will still register you.
However, we may need to contact our registration department first, to verify your information with them, and ensure your medical records are not delayed in being transferred to the Practice.
This will normally involve a phone call between you, our registration department, and ourselves. We will note on your record that you are unable to provide identification.

If you have any questions regarding NHS entitlement, or our registration policy please contact the Practice.
