If you are ill whilst away from home or if you are not registered with a practice but need to see a doctor, you can receive emergency treatment from a 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 at City Walls simply contact our reception.
Note: 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.
Temporary resident registration forms should be available at all practices. Alternatively, you can download a copy of the form by clicking on the following link:
