New Patient Prescriptions

Please be aware when transferring or registering with a new GP practice, all patients will need an appointment to set up any repeat medications.

Unfortunately, medications are unable to be transferred between previous and new GP surgeries.

Please account for this when requesting initial medication.

Temporary Patient Registrations

If you are unwell whilst away from your registered GP but in need of medical attention you can receive emergency treatment from a local GP practice for up to 14 days. After 14 days, you will be required to register as a temporary patient. This means you can remain registered at your original GP. If you are remaining in the area for over three months, you must register as a permanent patient.

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.
