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 register as a temporary patient, you can seek treatment with us under this temporary status for up to three months. This will allow you to be on our practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to register as a permanent patient with the Practice if you wish to continue to seek treatment with us.
To register as a temporary patient please contact us via telephone. We do not have to accept temporary patients although we 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.
