What do you do if you fall ill when not in Derby? The NHS allows patients to be treated as temporary residents at any GP practice throughout the UK. If you go home (in the UK) and you need to see a doctor, you can be seen by registering as a temporary patient at another surgery. Please do not register as a GMS patient outside of the Derby area if you intend to return to Derby University.
