Students are welcome to register with either of the two practices in St Andrews. However, due to the large numbers the practices split these up by surname for admin purposes.

First year students registering will be allocated as follows:

Blackfriars Medical Practice for students with the surnames Nu – Z

Pipeland Medical Practice for students with surnames A – Nt

If you are already registered with a practice there is no need to change.


Usually, we ask you to complete a form during matriculation to register with us. We ask you to fill in this form as completely as possible. Due to COVID-19 you will need to complete the forms below online and email them to (PLEASE NOTE THIS EMAIL IS FOR REGISTRATIONS ONLY, WE WILL NOT REPLY TO GENERAL ENQUIRIES)

If you have a chronic illness or complex health needs, additional information in the form of letters/prescriptions is helpful. An appointment to discuss this with one of the doctors may well be beneficial. 

You will remain registered with us during your studies. If you need medical assistance out with term time you can be seen at any GP Practice in the country as a Temporary Resident.

You cannot be registered with more than one General Practice at a time.

Please do not be tempted to register fully with a medical practice out with St Andrews during the holidays as this will cause unnecessary confusion and delays to the continuity of your care.
