Temporary Registration

If you need to see a doctor while you are visiting or on holiday in the area you can be seen as a temporary resident at a gp surgery nearest  to where you are staying . Please note if your appointment requires you to see our practice nurse for any kind of dressings,  please

arrange to bring these with you.

Home visits can be arranged for temporary residents who physically cannot get to the surgery, details will be needed to be taken over the telephone by one of our receptionist and a doctor will

visit after morning surgery has finished.

To register temporarily you will need to contact the surgery or come in and will be asked to fill out a temporary resident form and the receptionist  will offer you an appointment to see a doctor.

If you are going to be in the area for more than three months you will be advised to register fully with a gp.

If you are already registered with a gp in the area but need to see a doctor urgently and cannot get to your own surgery you can be seen once as an immediate necessary treatment patient and a temporary resident form will need to be filled in.
