If you have just moved to the local area, or are an International student PingLocker can help you in registering with a General Practitioner (GP) doctor.
The National Health Service (NHS) might seem very complicated if you have not used the system before. The NHS is a public funded system which provides health care for residents in the United Kingdom (UK).
PingLocker can help you in registering with a General Practitioner (GP) doctor. We will organize an appointment to visit your local health centre. Once you have registered with a GP/health centre you will be sent an NHS card. This is proof that you are registered for NHS treatment. If you have not received the card within two months of registering, contact the health centre who will advise what you should do. The card will be sent to the address you provided so it is essential that you notify the health centre if your address changes. When you receive the card, keep it safe and take it with you if you visit the health centre, dentist or hospital.
If you are a PingLocker Gold or Platinum member booking local doctor and dentists as a service is free, you only need to pay for your treatment. If you are a Pay As You Go (PAYG) PingLocker member then there is a small booking fee of £25.
