Temporary Services

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 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.

 Further Information on Temporary Registration

Your Named GP

You may be aware that all practices are now required to provide their patients with the name of a GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that their surgery provides to them. At our practice every patient is given a named or "usual" GP at the time they register, so nothing has changed for our patients.

Although your named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our practice provides to you, this does not prevent you from seeing any of the GPs in exactly the same way as you have in the past. We should like to reassure you that you may continue to access all of our services in exactly the same way as before. Should you visit a doctor, hospital or care provider from outside the practice you may give them the details of the GP you usually see, you do not have to give them the details of your named GP.

You do not need to take any further action, but if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the practice. Should you wish to change your named GP details please contact us, and we will aim to accommodate your request.

Allocating A Doctor

Although you will be officially registered with the practice, you may see any doctor. We do, however, recommend that you stay with one doctor through any one particular illness.
