Temporary Patient Registrations

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.

Online New Patient Registrations

We are now accepting online applications for registration: this is a 3 step process.

  1. Check that you live in our boundary area, and that you will be resident for 6 months.
  2. Complete the new patient questionnaire below and email it to us at adminsmp@nhs.net. This does not complete your registration. 
  3. After we have received the questionnaire, then we will email you a link to complete the registration process online. We will do this in 48hours of receiving the completed questionnaire.

Named GP

Every patient at St Martin's Practice has a named GP who has overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you

Please note that you have a choice of which GP you see, you are not restricted to your named GP. All our GPs work as a close-knit team, and all have access to your medical records.

All our GPs work part-time; you may fin it helpful to ask which days of the week your preferred GP works.
