Temporary Registration

Immediate Necessary patient

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 immediate necessary treatment from the local GP practice. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

Temporary 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.

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 register as a Temporary patient and wish to see a doctor you will be offered the next available routine appointment.
