Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home and need to see a GP you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice as a temporary resident. 

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 local 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.

You will be asked to provide photographic ID.

Please note that if you are visiting from an EU country you must provide a valid European Health Insurance Card (E111).  If you cannot provide this or are visiting from a country outwith the EU you may be seen as a private patient which will incur a fee.
