Temporary Residents

Patients visiting from another area in the UK for a period of less than 3 months, and who become unwell, are entitled to be seen as a temporary resident. You will be able to make an appointment in the same way as one of our normally registered patients.

If you only require a supply of your regular medication and you are normally resident in Scotland, it may be possible to obtain this from a local pharmacy under the "unscheduled care" scheme. This will avoid any delay whilst waiting for a GP appointment. If you are ordinarily resident in England, Wales or Northern Ireland, it still may be possible for a pharmacist to liaise directly with your usual GP in order to arrange medication.
