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 emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register 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 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.

 

If you are not a British Citizen

If you are visiting from abroad and you hold a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) you can be seen by a GP free of charge. Please note - you may need to pay for a private prescription if the GP issues you any medication.

If you DO NOT hold the above card then the charge for a GP consultation is £50.00 plus any additional fees for a private prescription if issued by the GP.

If you require a GP outside of our usual opening hours (8.00am - 6.30pm) please phone NHS 111
