Each medical practice has a geographical boundary.
Patients living within the boundary are entitled to register with the Kemnay Medical Group.
If you move house and your new home is located outside this boundary, we will ask you to register with another practice.
If you click on the Practice Boundary tab, this can give you access to a map of our geographically boundary and can check if your address falls within our boundary.
If you wish to register with the practice, and you have checked you are within the practice boundary, click on the links below to open and print the registration form.
It would be helpful if you could also print off and complete a medical questionnaire.
This is because it can take several weeks for your past medical records to reach us.
There is now a Patient consent form that you can complete, this allows relatives to access your results/ Medical History and receive/discuss any information with the patient's signed permission, this will also be documented onto the patients file when Clinicians access patients file, so they know that this permission has been given.
Hand the completed forms into reception as soon as possible - don't wait until you are ill before you register!
New adult health questionnaire 2022
New Patient Health Questionnaire (Under 16)
All too often patient's ask for information about their family members, which the Reception/Clinician team cannot share, due to confidentiality reasons, this form will prevent any issues or awkwardness to both the patient and staff members.
For GDPR reasons, we cannot give any information including appointment times, test results etc to anyone other than the patient, unless we have written and signed consent from the patient do to so.
This form allows patients who wish specific named family members/representative access to their medical information/results.
If you wish for relative to have access to your information, please download the form and ensure that you circle which information you wish your family members to receive/discuss (Results/Medical History/Medication) then, either post, email or hand this into the reception team and we can then enter this information onto your medical records.
Patient consent for results
Any New-born of a currently registered person who is permanently resident within our Practice Boundary, may apply for registration with the practice. It is advised that you register your baby with your GP as early as possible in case you need their help.
Most GP health records are a combination of paper records and computer records, created or stored on the practice’s computer system. Your GP practice will hold your records as long as you’re registered with them.
This has been put together by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) for patients.
This guide has been produced as part of the RCGP’s aim to build stronger relationships between you and your doctors and encourage the involvement and inclusion of you in your own care.
The guide provides helpful information on all aspects of using GP services: from finding and choosing a practice and how to get the most out of a GP consultation to accessing health records and understanding patients’ rights and responsibilities.
The publication is part of a push by the NHS as a whole to encourage you to understand how you can get the most out of primary care – which also includes how you can become more involved in monitoring your own health.

A Patient's Guide to GP Services
The reception staff will explain the process of how to register with the practice and will ask you to complete a set of Registration Forms.
Any new patient who is on repeat medication should highlight this to the reception staff and they will be contacted by the Practice Pharmacist for a medication review.
It would be helpful if you have you list of current medication readily to hand for this call.
It is now current practice to be registered with a Practice, not an individual GP.
If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure.
Please note, library cards, video rental cards, health club cards, private rent book or similar will not be acceptable as proof of identity.
You will also need to complete a registration form (GPR) and a health questionnaire, one for adults and one for under 16's (see Registration Forms) which will provide us with useful information whilst we wait for your past medical records. We have also introduced a consent access form, which will allow named members of your choice, access to your medical information. This will also be documented on your file so staff can see that you have made that choice for GDPR purposes.
We'd like to see all new patients who are on medication or who have a significant past medical history so that we can update your records as soon as possible. Your past medical records will come to the practice, but depending on where you come from, this may take several weeks.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.

NHS Scotland is improving the way it uses information from GP patient records
From May 2017 we will improve the way we use information from GP patient records. These changes will help to plan and improve health and care services in Scotland.
SPIRE (Scottish Primary Care Information Resource) is a service that has been developed to help GPs, the NHS in Scotland and researchers to learn from information held at GP practices.
What are the benefits of sharing my information?
SPIRE will be used to help plan for Scotland’s health and care needs. It allows information from GP patient records to be transferred electronically and held securely at NHS National Services Scotland, the NHS Scotland organisation responsible for health statistics.
It uses information from GP practices all over Scotland in a safe and secure way.
NHS organisations and approved researchers will be able to use SPIRE in ways that could help you and everyone in Scotland.
How will I and other patients benefit?
SPIRE will help your practice provide you with better care and services and help with the following:

What choices do I have?
If you’re happy for NHS Scotland to use information from your GP patient records for planning health and care services and for research, then you don’t need to do anything – it will happen automatically.
If you have any questions about SPIRE or want to know more about how confidential information is managed, just visit us at http://www.spire.scot.nhs.uk.
Alternatively call NHS inform on 0800 22 44 88 to find out more.
When do I need to make a decision? SPIRE will be introduced in phases across Scotland from January 2017. You can opt out at any time. If you do, NHS National Services Scotland will no longer receive information from your GP patient records. NHS National Services Scotland support the NHS by gathering information and producing statistical information and analysis that helps NHS Scotland make the right decisions for patients. You can change your mind at any time. Your choice will not affect the care you receive from your GP.
If you do not want information from your GP patient records to be used in this way, you need to notify your GP practice that you “want to opt out of SPIRE” by filling out the Opt Out form on the SPIRE website or the link below. Please print the form fill it out and hand it into your GP Surgery.
If you do not want your health information to be used, please fill in the form below and return it to your practice.
They will make sure your personal information is not used. When you have done that, NSS will not get any personal information from your GP practice’s health records. You can choose not to take part, or you can change your mind and take part at any time. Your choice will not affect the care you get from your GP practice or hospital.
