Patients visiting from another area in the UK for a period of less than 3 months, and who become unwell, are entitled to be seen as a temporary resident. You will be able to make an appointment in the same way as one of our normally registered patients.
If you only require a supply of your regular medication and you are normally resident in Scotland, it may be possible to obtain this from a local pharmacy under the “unscheduled care” scheme.
This will avoid any delay whilst waiting for a GP appointment. If you are ordinarily resident in England, Wales or Northern Ireland, it still may be possible for a pharmacist to liaise directly with your usual GP in order to arrange medication.
Patients from Overseas
There are laid down guidelines for patients from overseas which vary depending on the country of origin. Additional documentation may be required in these circumstances.
The Practice Manager or Reception Staff can advise.
