New Patient Registration
Welcome to Nottingham.
Most UK students will be registered with a UK General Practitioner/Family Doctor. However, NHS guidance strongly advises patients to register with a practice close to where you spend most of the year, which will be your university address.
The University of Nottingham Health Service is an NHS General Practice with a strong working relationship in supporting the health needs of the University community.
You may register with the University of Nottingham Health Service (UNHS) if you are a:
- student on a course of a minimum of three months at The University of Nottingham living within our catchment area (see map opposite)
- member of staff on a contract of at least six months and you live within our catchment area
- spouse, child or dependent of students and staff (as above)
If you are unsure if you live within the practice catchment area please use the link provided below:
Primary Care Catchment Tool
To register with the practice you will need your Nottingham address. Please ensure you have this before proceeding.
Please ensure that all fields in the registration forms are completed. Although it may be tempting to skip a few and hope for the best they are all important and without the full details we cannot process your registration. If there are any queries we will contact you by phone, email or text message. We have a limited window in which to edit your registration and resubmit so please do respond asap.
IMPORTANT - Nottingham is your new home town. The 'home address' section on the registration form refers to your new Nottingham address. If you are a student currently living elsewhere and moving to Nottingham please put your current address in the previous address section.
If you are a UK student, currently registered with a UK general practice please follow this link.
When asked for your previous address and GP information please provide your own previous UK home address and just the name of the GP surgery. Not the surgery address.
If you are an International student we need a few additional details so please follow this link.
If you have children under the age of 12 who are yet to be registered in the UK, the form below will need to be completed and returned to the practice in person or by post.
Medical History for Children Under 12
What happens next
Please allow 48 working hours for your registration to be processed. We will only contact you if there is an issue with your registration.
However if you need same day medical care please contact reception on 0115 8468888.
You may be invited by text message to attend the practice to receive any of the UK standard vaccinations which are recommended for students. Predominantly, MMR, Meningitis ACWY and HPV vaccines, as well as influenza vaccination for those that are eligible. We very strongly recommend you attend these vaccination sessions if invited.
Allocation of Named Accountable GP
All patients who register with us, including children, are allocated a named, accountable GP who is responsible for their overall care at the practice. This is referred to as your 'Usual GP'. You should be informed of your Usual GP when you register but you can check who this is with any member of staff at any time. We will always make reasonable efforts to accommodate requests to change the Usual GP. This does not change your ability to request to see any of our individual GP's at any stage.
