If you are moving away from home to Glasgow, you will need to register with a local general practitioner (GP). You are entitled to free essential NHS care and this includes a GP.
Please visit NHS to find a doctor near you. You only have to enter your postcode and all the available doctors (and dentists) will be located.
If you are staying at Caledonian Court, they will have registration forms for the nearest surgery, which is Woodside, available at reception when you move in.

Your doctor may prescribe some medicine for you. This is called a prescription, and you will only be able to get this document from your doctor. You will need to take your prescription a pharmacy (or chemist as they are also known as).
You should take your prescription to your local chemist and they will help you complete the form. The nearest chemist to the university is:
