In the UK, non-emergencies are dealt with in a surgery by a doctor known as a General Practitioner (GP).
You need to register with a doctor before you are treated. Therefore you must do this within the first week of your arrival in the UK.
Names and addresses of doctors can be obtained from the University Health Centre or www.cardiff.ac.uk/osheu/healthcentre/gpdent
There will also be opportunities to register with a doctor at University Halls of Residence.
You do not pay to register with or to consult with a doctor. Women can see a female doctor. GP appointments are short - only 5 minutes or 10 minutes, but your GP will refer you to a consultant – an expert - if you need extra or special treatment, like an operation.
