SCAMMERS TARGETING PATIENTS. 1.5.19

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THERE HAVE BEEN REPORTS THAT PATIENTS ACROSS SUSSEX ARE BEING TARGETED BY SCAMMERS. THEY ARE PHONING PATIENTS TRYING TO CONVINCE THEM THAT THEY ARE  CALLING FROM A GP SURGERY AS THERE IS AN ISSUE WITH PATIENT MEDICATION NOT BEING AVAILABLE. THEY THEN REQUEST BANK DETAILS TO TAKE PAYMENT.

**IF YOU RECEIVE A PHONE CALL LIKE THIS HANG UP. WE WOULD NEVER ASK FOR BANK DETAILS OF ANY OF OUR PATIENTS.**

Temporary Registration

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 contact the local practice you wish to use. 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.
