Temporary Patient Registrations

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.

Non-English Speakers

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.

Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.

Open the leaflets in one of the following languages:

Disabled Patient Facilities

The surgery has disabled/wheelchair access to the ground floor (where we offer the full range of services) and a lift that offers easy access to all floors in the building. Special toilet facilities are also available.

We have portable hearing loops for the deaf or hard of hearing and offer large-print practice leaflets for the visually impaired. Please ask at reception for either of these two services.

Parking

Car parking at the surgery is restricted, although roadside parking is available on Shavington Avenue and Newton Lane.

Please show consideration for local residents and other surgery users when parking: DO NOT park on yellow lines or restrict access to driveways when attending the surgery - no matter how quick your visit.
