VISITORS TO NEWQUAY

If you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one, you can receive emergency treatment from a local GP practice for 14 days.

You can register temporarily with a local GP if you're ill or need medical advice while you're away from home – for example, if you're working, studying or on holiday. Your temporary GP will pass details of any treatment you have to your permanent GP, who will add the information to your medical records.

To register as a temporary resident with a GP, please contact the local surgery that covers the area you are staying in.

Please note: Our clinicians will need to know about any medication you are taking or any allergies you have.  Please make sure you have these details before your appointment, please contact your own GP if necessary.

Forgotten/Lost Medication

All our local pharmacies can receive prescriptions electronically.
If you have either forgotten your medication or lost it, your own GP surgery can send the prescription via the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) to a local pharmacy of your choice. Please call your GP surgery and request your medication to be sent electronically to a local pharmacy, you will need to give them the name and postcode of the pharmacy you wish to collect from (see list below)
This is the quickest way for you to receive your medication.
