When studying at a new location it’s important to register with a doctor and dentist within the first month of study.

Health Services – Doctors and Dentists
The NHS, the National Health Service, runs a website called NHS Direct, this site allows you to search for your nearest doctor, dentist, hospital or pharmacist (and much more), via a postcode search. Once you have identified a doctor/dentist you will need to register with them - to do this you will need to fill out a GMS1 form.

If you are in doubt about an illness then ring NHS Direct to speak to an adviser, the phones are open 24 hours a day, every day of the year, 0845 4647.

If you feel very unwell and are not registered with a doctor, you can visit an NHS Walk in Centre, again details are found on the NHS website. Walk in Centres are usually centrally located. In a complete emergency you would phone 999 for an ambulance or you would make your way to your nearest Accident and Emergency Department in the local hospital.

NHS Treatment for international students
If you have a student visa and you are registered for a course of 6 months or longer, you can get some free NHS care from the beginning of your stay in the UK.

All international students, even if you are entitled to NHS treatment, must have insurance, with enough cover to meet the costs of substantial treatment and to return you home if necessary.

If your student visa is for less than 6 months (and you are not an EEA / Swiss National), you have to pay for other treatment. Although in an emergency you may get some free treatment, this is limited to urgent care that cannot be delayed until you are able to receive other treatment covered by insurance or you can return home.
