July 19th 2021 is when all restrictions for COVID are removed. The practice is a high risk environment and we are keen to maintain a safe and healthy place for you to be. Please help us to keep you and those around you safe.  Masks - the continued wearing of masks is current government guidance and is strongly recommended. Please wear your mask if you come into the practice for any reason.  Social distancing - we will continue to promote social distance awareness.  Please use chairs available in the waiting area, which are separated for distance purposes. If there is no seating left, please consider waiting outside until one becomes available.  Hand Sanitiser - this will continue to be provided. Please use when entering the building and when leaving.  Your help with keeping us safe is appreciated. Many thanks.

Temporary Registration

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.

NHS Counter Fraud

NHS Counter Fraud and Security Management Services aim to reduce the number of people who claim NHS Care fraudulently. Please ensure you are entitled to NHS funded healthcare before registering to avoid any problems at a latter stage.
