Register with a GP (Doctor)

It's important to register with a local Doctor, or General Practitioner (GP) as they are known in the UK, when you arrive at University, so you can access medical advice if you need it. You can find instructions on how to register here

Come and join us at our Wellbeing Health Fayre.

Here you can register with a GP, find out about local medical services available to you, and meet our Wellbeing Teams who are on hand to answer any queries you may have.

We look forward to seeing you there.

IMPORTANT - Please bring with you to University one month's supply of any medication you are currently being prescribed. This is to ensure you have enough medication whilst going through the GP registration process.

In the UK there are 3 main ways for you to receive medical help if you need it. Usually you will attend your GP (Doctors) surgery (office) via a pre-booked appointment for medical help. These appointments can take place either online or face to face.

Alternatively for minor ailments/illnesses you can go to your local pharmacy as a first point of contact. Pharmacists are trained to offer clinical advice on how to manage a range of minor health concerns such as coughs & cold, sore throats, tummy troubles, and aches and pains. They assess symptoms, reassure you and will advise you if you need to seek further medical advice.

If you are not sure which service to use, you can use NHS 111. You can use this service to be directed to the best place to get help if you cannot contact your GP during the day, or when your GP is closed (out-of-hours).
