The length of time that a patient is intending to reside in an area dictates whether a patient is registered as a temporary or permanent patient.

Patients will be offered the option of registering as a:

  • temporary resident if they are planning to reside within the Practice boundary area for more than 24 hours but less than 3 months;
  • permanent resident if they are planning to stay within the Practice boundary area for more than 3 months.
