Should you wish to register with Yellow Practice please telephone 01738 621726 for further details.   We currently do not accept 'walk in' registrations but will email or post out forms for completion and return.

if you are not already registered with a Perth  City Practice and you are resident within the designated practice area (see location map opposite), you can register with the practice. Please click on the image to download a larger version of the map.

 

It is our policy that patients register with the practice and not with an individual GP. Your medical card will have a doctor's name attached, but this is purely for administrative purposes.

You may indicate your preference to see or speak to a particular doctor, but the practice cannot always accommodate these requests as specific doctors may not always be available.

Temporary Registrations

 

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.
