Temporary residents


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 treatment from us for up to 14 days.

After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be a temporary patient with us for up to three months and this will allow you to still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to either re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with us.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact us. We do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although we do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient is you are already registered with another doctors’ practice in the area.
