Registration is a simple process: you just need to go to the Surgery with proof of your address and that you are a student at College. Female students can ask to be registered with a female doctor. You will receive a Medical Card in the post a week or two later. If you then need to see a doctor, ring the Surgery for an appointment.
There is no payment for an appointment to see a doctor, eye-tests, for any tests or X-rays you may need; or for any hospital treatment. However, you may have to pay for dental treatment. A list of dental practices is available from the NHS 24 website.
An EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) is useful and this can be obtained from your country’s health authority.
