If you are staying in Alton we are happy to see you in normal surgery appointments, either with doctors or nurses. You will be asked to complete a simple form, recording your own doctor as well as your permanent and temporary addresses. If you are staying more than three months, then you should register as a permanent patient.
Visitors from abroad are also welcome. Europe and Commonwealth residents can expect full access to free NHS emergency care. Some countries do not have such arrangements with the NHS, and so patients should expect to be charged for consultations.
As a temporary patient we will not have access to your medical records, so will be restricted in what long term care we can offer. This will be discussed with you at your appointment but is usually best left to your own doctor.
