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.

You cannot register as a temporary patient at a Practice in the town or area where you are already registered.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the practice.

Non-urgent advice: Please Note

Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment.
