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 register as a 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. 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 practice to make an appointment. You will be asked to complete a form when you attend, so please bring details of both your home and temporary addresses, and your own GPs details.

If you have run out of medication while away from home this can normally be issued from our dispensary at the discretion of our GPs. Please provide full details of the medication, doses and how long you are away from home when you request this. The GP may wish to see you to confirm the details.
