Register with a doctor
You can find out about GP services in your area by contacting the following agencies:
- NHS choices
- Your local library
Every GP service should have a leaflet which will tell you the surgery hours and types of services offered - e.g. contraception, smears, travel clinics, etc.
Choose a doctor within walking distance and find out their opening times, either visit or phone to check if they will take you on as a patient. If you are accepted you will be asked for your name, address, date of birth and for your medical card (if you have one).
