In an emergency we will see patients who are taken ill when staying with one of our registered patients. Please telephone the Surgery and inform us that you have a temporary resident staying with you – this includes a son or daughter returning from university. The receptionist will advise you of your most suitable options for treatment. If your guest is not entitled to receive NHS treatment he/she can be seen as a private patient but will be charged accordingly.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the our 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 us.
