 Visitors to the local area

If you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one, you can receive emergency treatment from a local GP practice for 14 days.

You can register temporarily with a local GP if you're ill or need medical advice while you're away from home – for example, if you're working, studying or on holiday. Your temporary GP will pass details of any treatment you have to your permanent GP, who will add the information to your medical records.

To register as a temporary resident with a GP, please contact the local surgery that covers the area you are staying in.

Please note: Our clinicians will need to know about any medication you are taking or any allergies you have.  Please make sure you have these details before your appointment, please contact your own GP if necessary.
