The NHS provides health treatment for those living in the UK, most of which is free.
You can only access the NHS if you are registered with a General Practitioner (GP); these are also sometimes known as family doctors. As soon as you arrive in London, you should register with a GP close to where you live. Do not wait until you are unwell.
You can find your nearest GP by using the GP finder on the NHS website.
Once you have done this check with your local surgery for opening hours and information on making appointments. You may be asked to provide proof that you are a student when registering with a GP.
After you register, you will receive a personal NHS number which you should keep safe.
