Temporary Registration

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 immediately necessary treatment from the local GP practice . After that you will need to seek registration as a temporary 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 seek permanent registration 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 urgent treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
