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 emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
If you are living temporarily in our catchment area and you become ill, providing you are entitled to NHS treatment, you may be able to register as a temporary patient for up to 3 months
To register as a temporary patient, please call the surgery for more details. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
