It is important to register with a doctor as soon as you arrive in Swansea in order to access NHS care. All students living in University residences (on campus, Beck House and Hendrefoelan Village) are required to register with a local GP within two weeks of arrival. You may register with a doctor off campus if you prefer.
PLEASE NOTE THAT REGISTRATION FOR THE HEALTH CENTRE IS SEPARATE FROM REGISTRATION FOR THE DENTAL SURGERY.
