What if I need to see a doctor or have a medical emergency while I am in London? 


Depending on the seriousness of your situation you can try these healthcare options:
 

For life-threatening emergencies:

 

For less urgent medical help and if you are feeling unwell:

  • Ask a local pharmacist for advice on minor illnesses, such as diarrhoea, minor infections, headaches, sore throats, or travel health
     
  • Register with an NHS GP practice as a “Temporary Patient” (if you are in the area for more than 24 hours and less than three months). It is up to the GP practice to decide whether to accept new patients or not. Treatment will be free of charge. Find a GP and doctor in London
     
  • Try an Urgent Care Walk-in Centre if you cannot register with a GP.. Registration is not required and patients do not need an appointment. Most centres are open 365 days a year and outside office hours. Find Urgent Care Walk-in Centres in London

     
  • Call NHS 111 for medical advice if it's not a life-threatening situation. You can also call NHS 111 if you're not sure which NHS service you need.


 

Also note:

Some services or treatments carried out in an NHS hospital are exempt from charges, so they're free to all.
 

These include:

 

If you're visiting England for more than 6 months, you'll need to pay the immigration health surcharge, unless you're exempt from paying it. The full amount will be paid upfront for the duration of your visa and this entitles you to free NHS hospital treatment in England.


If you're visiting England for less than 6 months, you should ensure you're covered for healthcare through personal medical insurance during your visit, even if you're a former UK resident. You will need to pay for NHS hospital treatment and you'll be charged at 150% of the national NHS rate.
