Temporary Patients

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

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months.  This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP.  After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice. 

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use.  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.
