Temporary Residents You are entitled to see a doctor anywhere in the UK if you are away from home and in need of medical help. You can do this by asking to see the nearest doctor as a temporary resident. By the same token, we are happy to see your relatives or friends staying with you if they need a doctor. If necessary, the doctor can supply a prescription for up to two weeks.
