About the Practice
Perth and Scone Medical Group has a patient population of around 12,800 patients, and we provide general medical services to a mixture of both urban and rural areas from two sites - Taymount Surgery in Perth and Scone Surgery in Scone.
Our Practice Information Leaflet will give you all the information that you need about the services provided by our Primary Health Care Team.
How to Register with Us
Patients wishing to register with the practice will be asked to come to the surgery to complete all the necessary forms. We welcome patients from within the city of Perth, the village of Scone, and the surrounding district - see Our Locations.
You will be given a new patient appointment with the Health Care Assistant and asked to complete a medical questionnaire. Patients are registered with the Practice and not an individual doctor, but you can of course see the doctor of your choice.
The Patient Charter
You will be treated as an individual and will be given courtesy and respect at all times. You will receive the most appropriate care, given by suitably qualified people, and no care or treatment will be given without your informed consent.
In return we would ask you to treat all doctors and staff with courtesy and respect. We would also ask that you try to follow the medical advice offered, and take any medication as advised.
For further information view a copy of our Patients' Rights and Responsibilities leaflet.
Removal of Patients from our List
We are committed to removing patients from the practice list only in exceptional circumstances, for example when the patient's behaviour has led to a complete breakdown in the relationship between the practice and the patient.
If a decision is taken to remove a patient from the list, they will be formally advised by letter giving the reasons for the decision to remove. The patient will then be officially notified by Practitioner Services in Aberdeen of their date of removal from our list and given information on how to register with another doctor.
We have a zero tolerance policy towards threatening or abusive behaviour and in these cases this may result in immediate removal from the list. Patients who also fail to attend for their booked appointments without notifying the practice may also find they are removed from the list.
