Temporary Registration (For patients temporarily out of their normal practice area)

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. You will need to register as a temporary patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be seen at a local practice 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.  You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
