Temporary Residents

If you are visiting relatives in the area or here for only a short holiday or period of time, and need to see a doctor, please contact reception on 01253 951717. You will then be asked to complete the relevant form.

Once you have completed the form you can receive emergency treatment from the practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient. The appts will be offered on the same basis as our registered patients so you may not get seen straight away. If you require an urgent on the day appt please see our front page for same day centres and extended access.

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 the practice.
