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 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.
Your Named GP
From the 1st April 2015 practices are required under their contract to allocate a named GP to all patients including children. All patients at the surgery have been allocated a named GP who is responsible for generally over seeing your medical care but for your day to day consultations if your named GP is not available you can continue to see any Doctor within the practice.
As a patient you do not have to take any further action but if you have any queries regarding this please do not hesitate to contact the Practice Manager to discuss this further.
If you would like to know who your allocated GP is please ask at Reception
Patients aged over 75
All patients aged over 75 are allocated a named GP by our Surgery. This GP will be responsible for the oversight and co-ordination of your care at the Practice. They will
- Ensure that services are delivered to you,
- Work with health and social care professionals to deliver care to meet your needs
- Ensure that your needs are recognised and responded to by the relevant clinicians in the practice

You may not be able to see your named GP “on the day”, but their colleagues will be available. Your named GP will take an overview of your care.
Initially, we have allocated the GP named on your medical card...You are free to choose who your named GP will be if you wish to change.
Patients will be informed of this by messages on prescriptions or at consultations at the surgery.
