You can register as a temporary resident with a GP surgery for up to 3 months. This can be helpful if you’re living away from home but do not want to change your home GP surgery.
To register you’ll need to fill out a temporary services form (GMS3), available from GP surgeries.
After 3 months, you’ll have to reapply to register as a temporary resident at another GP practice or become a permanent patient.
You may also be able to register as a temporary resident if you are visiting from abroad.
If your application is refused, you can still receive any treatment you need immediately for up to 14 days.
