Elgar House is an Edwardian Building of great substance and character.  Formerly an Employment Exchange, its Northern aspect was the drill hall for the Royal North Worcestershire Regiment.

The Practice formed from the merger of two long established Practices which moved to Smallwood Health Centre in 1973.  Elgar House, converted and extended, became our base in 1993.

Temporary Patient 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 temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply complete the form below in full and email it to the practice: M81002.patient@nhs.net or post it into the surgery if you do not have access to email. 

Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
