Registering with a GP

 

​​​​Why? 


If you are from outside Cardiff and moving to the area, you will need to register with a local General Practice (GP); it is
always best to do this before you become ill. No matter how well you get on with your current practitioner, he or she
cannot continue to provide you with a service from Land’s End, John O’Groats or even Bridgend or Pontypridd if you
are living in Cardiff. You will be able to see your old GP as a temporary patient when you return home in the holidays.


 ​How to register with a GP

Using the lists below

  • find a surgery allocated to your Halls or near to where you will be living .
  • Visit this surgery taking your NHS card (if you do not have this, the address of your current GP is essential).
  • Ask to register with the practice, stating that you are a student.


If you are still unable to find a GP in your area who will register you,

you will need to telephone the NHS Business Service Centre 01495 332000,

they will inform you which GPs are available in your area
