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.
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 immediate and necessary emergency treatment.
You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
