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. Thereafter you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. You will require to provide proof of ID in the form of EHIC and passport. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP.
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.
