It's important to look after your physical health while you're at university. You may have moved to a new area or even country so it's important to register with a doctor and know where you can access support if you need it.

Registering with a doctor

It's important for all students to be registered with a GP near to where you are living. Use the links below to find your nearest GP. You can also find local dentist, pharmacies and other clinics.
