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 England require practices to promote and offer the facility to enable patients online access to appointments, prescriptions and their medical records.
They have recently advised that, if a patients wants access to their record they can have access via the patient online access. But prior to this the GP will authorise what the patient is eligible to see from their records. i.e, the GP will decide whether you can see your blood results, BP, height and weight, lifestyle changes, etc. By seeing your records online, this may help to manage your medical conditions. This also means that you can access yours records anywhere at anytime.
Once you have signed the form and provided proof of ID you will be given your log in details, therefore you will need to think of a unique password. This will ensure that only you will have access to your records - unless you decide to share your details with a member of your family or carer. Soon as you long on to the online access, you will only have access to your repeat medications and you can book appointments.
IT WILL BE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO KEEP YOUR LOG DETAILS AND PASSWORD SAFE AND SECURE. IF YOU KNOW OR SUSPECT THAT YOUR RECORD HAS BEEN ACCESSED BY SOMEONE THAT YOU HAVE NOT AGREED SHOULD SEE IT, THEN YOU SHOULD CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD IMMEDIATELY.
We aim to offer patients online access to some aspects of their medical records.
We are now offering our patients to download the MyGP App. You can book and cancel appointments 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
MyGP app provides easier access to your healthcare and manage appointments from your smartphone anytime and anywhere. It allows you to easily book and cancel appointments for your children, partner, parents and other dependants.
You can also use the app to record your weight and BP data empowering you to set goals and monitor your progress.
Also there is an option for you to monitor your medication. You can set reminders of when your next monthly scripts needs to be ordered or if you forget to take your medication often, you can set a reminder on the app to remind you to take your medication.
