Patients away from home and staying in this area for more than 24 hours may be seen at this practice as long as they meet one of the following criteria:
- Was previously registered but at university and home for the holidays
- Was previously registered but moved out of area (and here for 24+ hours)
- Is a relative of a patient who has full registration at this practice (and here for 24 hrs)
Practices have a duty of care to provide emergency treatment and “immediate necessary treatment” free of charge for up to 14 days to any person in their immediate area. There is no definition of immediate necessary treatment but it should be viewed as treating new conditions and any pre-existing conditions that have become exacerbated during the person’s stay in this area. If the condition requires referral to hospital or elsewhere, the patient must see their own GP.
We have no capacity to see other GPs’ patients; please attend your own GP or go to the nearest walk-in centre (Epsom Hospital) – link to website here … https://www.epsom-sthelier.nhs.uk/walk-in-appointment/
