If you are ill while away from home and are staying with someone who is a patient at this practice, you can receive treatment from this GP practice.
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 for a further three months or consider registering on a permanent basis at this practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the practice. A practice 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.
