Temporary Patients

** Please only register as a temporary patient if you require immediate attention and are in the practice area for 3 months or less.

This mean you continue to be registered with your home practice but can access service from this practice whilst you are in the area. After 3 months your registration will expire and you will be asked to register as a permanent patient if you are still living here.

Please note: It is important you provide us with accurate and up to date information when registering. This includes your previous registration history with a GP in the UK and your NHS number. If this information is missing or incorrect, it could delay your registration or possibly result in it being rejected by the Health Authority. You should be able to obtain your NHS number by contacting your previous GP surgery.

Patients may see any of the doctors they choose. For recurring conditions it’s probably better to see the same doctor. In an emergency the doctor of your choice may not be available – you will be offered an alternative.

Please email this form to reception.group@nhs.net with reason for your registration.
