These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages.
The surgery can access telephone interpreting via Language Line. Please refer to the card at the front desk and notify the receptionist upon arrival that you will need an interpreter and this will be arranged for you.
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 temporarily 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.
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 the surgery if you are already registered with another Enfield surgery.
