Temporary Residents

If you are staying with an existing Chawton House Surgery patient and require medical attention, you can be seen here as a Temporary Resident. You will need to complete a Temporary Resident form and make an appointment. You will also need to supply the details of the GP you are registered with at your usual place of residence.

If you are temporarily staying in Lymington but we do not have any appointments available you may be asked to attend the Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) at Lymington New Forest Hospital, which is a walk-in service. If you are staying with a patient of another local Surgery you will be directed to that Surgery, or you may also attend the UTC.

For those who are not normally resident in the UK, or who have been living in the UK for less than 3 months special rules apply. For residents of the EU and some other countries, reciprocal agreements apply. A British passport does not entitle a person normally resident outside the UK to health care under the NHS (being resident in the UK for more than 6 months does).

We will provide our services on a private basis to those without proof of NHS entitlement. A list of fees is available at reception.

Please arrive in ample time before your appointment to enable completion of the paperwork.

Immediately Necessary Patients

If you are visiting the area for 24 hours or less and are suffering from a condition that needs immediate attention we will see you as an “Immediately Necessary Patient”. You will need to complete a Temporary Resident form and have details of your doctor’s name and address. This registration covers you only for the day on which you receive the “Immediately Necessary Treatment”.
