Register with a doctor

Our article How can I register with a doctor and/or dentist? gives you an overview of how to register with a GP for the first time. We strongly recommend that you register with a local GP while at university. This advice applies to both international students and students moving to London from another part of the UK.

Prior to starting at King’s, we advise that you have:

  • A COVID-19 Vaccine, which is the best defence against severe illness and hospitalisation from coronavirus.
  • The Meningitis ACWY Vaccine, which can prevent meningitis and septicaemia.
  • Two doses of the MMR vaccine, which can protect you from mumps and measles.
