Temporary 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 permanent patient.

If you are registered at a surgery within Essex, reception will direct you back to contact your own Gp as you are still within their boundaries.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact reception. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. 

Accountable GP

From 1st April 2015, practices are required to allocate all patients (including children) with a named accountable GP.

The named GP is responsible for the coordination and delivery of all appropriate services, where required based on clinical judgement, to each of their patients.

  • Patients do not need to see their named GP when they book an appointment with the practice.


  • Patients are entitled to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice.

Accessing someone else’s information

As a parent, family member or carer, you may be able to access services for someone else. We call this having proxy access. We can set this up for you if you are both registered with us.

To requests proxy access:

  • collect a proxy access form from reception

Linked profiles in your NHS account

Once proxy access is set up, you can access the other person’s profile in your NHS account, using the NHS App or website.

The NHS website has information about using linked profiles to access services for someone else.
