Right. I need to visit the doctor. But I'm currently in another part of the country, and won't be able to visit my GP for the next month or so.
Is it possible to visit a GP that resides in the hospital without having registered there?

A walk-in centre, perhaps? I'm under the impression that you can just walk in and get an appointment without being registered... Not totally sure about this, but it would make sense to assume so, otherwise people that are away from home have no chance of finding a doctor.

Ho es every town has a walk in centre or urgent care centre they are mostly based at hospital. You don't need no id or medical records.
If you go in the evening or weekend the waiting times are quite long.

You can go to a GP in the area you are in and register as a temporary resident. Otherwise walk-in-centre

if you need to see a doctor, you can call up a local surgery and explain the situation, if it's something that definitely can't wait they can usually help

It depends i think.
When i was really ill a couple of months ago i couldnt see the doctor back home because id registered with my one at uni. I had to wait until i was ill enough to go to the emergency doctors at the hospital..and even then i had to ring and explain to someone before i was able to go down.
Your best bet would be to try a walk in centre or something along those lines.

You can go to a local surgery and register as a temporary patient, so you can see a doctor there.
