Health Check

Temporary Residents

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

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.

Valid forms of ID

To register we require photo ID (passport, drivers licence or EU Identity card).

If you are homeless or of no fixed abode, then although it is helpful to have photo ID you can register without any.

Any other ID such as an HC2 Certificate, Rough Sleepers' Identity badge, Hostel registration or mail forwarding letter would also be helpful but again we will register you even if you don't have these. As we know it is more important that you can access health care when you need it.

If you are unsure on how to register, please ask at reception and they can help you to complete the registration process.

Accountable Named GP for All Patients

You will be allocated a named GP on registration but you will be registered with the practice rather than that individual GP. You may see any of the doctors. However, if you do have a preferred GP, please let us know when making an appointment and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

New patients are allocated a Doctor on Registration.
