Temporary Patient Registrations

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 would be registered as an 'Immediate Necessary' in order to provide urgent medical help.

You can also be registered with us 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.  If you are in the area for longer than three months you would need to register as a permanent patient. 

To register as a temporary patient simply contact us and we can complete a form over the phone with you, or at the front desk. 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.

Non-English Speakers

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.

Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
