TEMPORARY PATIENTS and VISITING PATIENTS

UK Residents

If you are in the area for a short time and require medical treatment you are able to register with this practice as a temporary resident. This gives you the same access to general medical services as registered patients but only for a period up to three months. If you are going to be in the area for longer than three months you should register fully with a GP.

If you are registered with another practice locally it is essential that you to attend your own practice where your medical notes are available.

 

Emergency Treatment for Foreign Visitors

People from abroad are eligible for free treatment on the NHS in the case of an emergency. Broadly, this means that if, in the opinion of the GP, your condition requires emergency treatment you will not be charged for a consultation with the GP. If you require treatment or medication for a pre-existing condition you will be charged a fee, which then should be claimed back via your insurance company. 

Please note that these conditions also apply to British nationals living abroad.

Should you be registered with another practice locally you are required to attend your own practice where your medical notes are available.

The nearest Accident and Emergency casualty departments to Garstang Medical Practice are Royal Lancaster Infirmary and Royal Preston Hospital.
