UK citizens

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 either for a period of 24 hours up to 15 days, or between 15 days and 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 attend your own practice where your medical notes are available.


Overseas visitors

If you're in England for a short visit but need to see a GP, you can register as a temporary patient.
You need to be in the area for more than 24 hours but less than 3 months.
Treatment will be free of charge, but you may be required to present your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) if you have one. 

More information can be found on the NHS website

Please note the surgery is not an accident and emergencies department and in the event of an injury the patient should be taken straight to a hospital in Taunton or Yeovil.
