If you are ill when you are 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.
We only accept temporary patients if they are staying with one of our existing patients.
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.
