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.

Summary Care Records are accessible to authorised healthcare staff treating patients in an emergency in England. All information is confidential and only accessible to staff with NHS Smartcards.

Local Care Record
Local NHS organisations have a duty to keep complete, accurate and up-to-date information about your health, so that you can receive the best possible care. Sometimes the people caring for you also need to share some of your information with others that are also supporting you. This could include GPs, hospital based specialists, nurses and health visitors. To support this information sharing to happen more quickly and to improve the care you receive, a new process has been put in place in Southwark and Lambeth. This joins up your care records from local hospital organisations (Guy’s and St Thomas’, King’s College Hospital and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts) with GP practice information through existing computer systems. It is called the Local Care Record.
Information is only shared when it is needed to make your care and treatment safer, easier and faster and only with those people directly involved in your care. This could include allowing a hospital doctor to see the medication that a GP has prescribed for you when you go in to hospital or allowing a GP to see what care, tests or treatment you received while in hospital. Above all it will allow professionals that are supporting you to work with you to make safer and better decisions about your care.
The doctor or healthcare professional treating you will inform you that they are accessing your shared Local Care Record.
However, in an emergency situation where you may not be conscious or able to give consent, they will access your information to give you the best care. You can choose for your information not to be shared between your local NHS organisations. You can dissent by signing an agreement, a copy is available below to download. Whilst we will of course honour decision please note that not sharing your information may affect the care you receive and will not allow you to visit a GP Access Hub.
