Temporary Residents 

If you require an urgent appointment and cannot access your own GP you can visit us as a temporary patient. A temporary registration form must be completed and given to a member of reception BEFORE the appointment time so we can activate you an account on our system. You must tell the receptionist the reason for the appointment when booking as a temporary patient. For non-emergency care, you can visit the walk-in centre next door to A+E at Tameside General Hospital



Temporary Residents - Long stay

If you are staying in the area for anything up to 3 months then you can register as a temporary patient which enables you to see one of our doctors for any problem whilst you are away from home. You must complete a temporary registration form so we can activate you an account on our system. After the 3-month registration has expired your medical notes that we have collected in that time will be sent back to your own GP - unless you complete a full registration form and become a permanent patient.


Other types of Temporary Registration

You may also attend our surgery as a temporary patient for the following:

  • Contraception (by referral from your GP only)
  • Minor Surgery (by referral from your GP only)
  • Holiday vaccinations (Happy Vacs)
