  4. Provide necessary documents: You may need to show proof of your identity (e.g., passport) and university enrolment (e.g., student ID) during the registration process.
  5. Attend a new patient health check (this is often optional but recommended so that your GP can understand your current state of health and medical history).
When to register with a GP at Sheffield University?

It is advisable to register with a GP as soon as possible after arriving at Sheffield University. It's important to have access to healthcare services in case you need medical attention during your studies: don’t wait until you need it to register.

Can students at Sheffield University register for a GP online?

The ability to register with a GP online may vary depending on the GP practice. Some practices may offer online registration services, while others may require you to visit the practice in person. Check the GP practice's website or contact them directly to see if online registration is available. Here is the online registration form for Carrfield Medical Centre.

How can students at Sheffield University see a GP?

Most GP practices offer appointments for routine check-ups, general health concerns, and non-emergency medical issues. You can typically book appointments by phone or through the practice's website.

How can international students get healthcare while studying at Sheffield University?

International students studying at Sheffield University can access healthcare services through the National Health Service (NHS) during their stay in the UK. Here's how they can do it:

  1. Register with a GP: As mentioned earlier, international students can register with a local GP practice near their university accommodation or campus. The process for registration is the same as for domestic students.
  2. Access NHS services: Once registered with a GP, international students can access a wide range of healthcare services provided by the NHS. These services include general medical care, specialist referrals if needed, and access to medications (some of which may require payment, depending on their visa and immigration status).
  3. Health insurance: It's important for international students to check their specific visa requirements and whether they need private health insurance in addition to the NHS services.

Please note that healthcare policies and processes can change, so it's essential for students to keep themselves informed about the latest healthcare guidelines and regulations while studying at Sheffield University. The university's official website and the NHS website should be reliable sources for the most up-to-date information.

International Students

The National Health Service (NHS) is the UK’s state healthcare system. It provides a wide range of services including doctor's appointments and hospital treatment.

International Students are entitled to receive healthcare from the NHS (National Health Service) if:

  • you are a full time student in the UK for more than 6 months
