Temporary Residents

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.

To register you will need to bring your passport and complete our Temporary Resident Registration form which is also available from reception.

Out of Area Registration

Patients who live outside of the practice area may apply for “Out of Area” registration. This is at the discretion of the doctors as it will be unsuitable for some patients. If you move away and want to remain as an “Out of Area” patient and this is accepted by the doctors you will be asked to reregister. We will be unable to visit you at home if you are not well enough to attend surgery and if this should happen you would need to contact NHS 111 to arrange medical care.
