Although this is called ‘temporary’ accommodation, this will be your new address so don't forget to let key people know of your new postal address. This means letting the Department for Work and Pensions know if you are receiving benefits, as well as your doctor or hospital, this is especially important if you are expecting medical appointments or information. You can use this address to register at a new GP if you have moved into a new area. You do not need a fixed address, identification, or a specific immigration status to register at the GP. Bear in mind that changing to a new area may affect your place in medical waiting lists.
