Temporary residents

 

If you are ill while away from home (and are outside the catchment area for your usual GP) 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 either a temporary or permanent patient with us. (If you register as a temporary patient you will also remain a patient of your permanent GP for 3 months. After 3 months you must permanently register with us or go back to the care of your permanent GP.)

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 if you are already registered with another doctor's practice in our area.
