Transfer a list of patients

Published on 16 July 2021

When a dentist transfers their list of patients to another dentist, it’s called a bulk transfer. You can transfer a whole list of patients to another dentist or just part of it.

How to bulk transfer a list of patients

Request a GP209 form from your local health board and submit the completed form to our Customer Administration team (unless a local NHS board has requested it).

You can email the completed GP209 form to if you have an NHS email account.

If you don’t have an NHS email account, post the form to:

(D&O Operations department)
Practitioner Services
Gyle Square
1 South Gyle Crescent
EH12 9EB

Transfer patients who aren’t part of your practice

If you’re requesting a transfer of patients who are not part of your practice, you’ll need to complete a GP208 form.

You should request this form from your local NHS board and return it to them.
