Health Facilities

To access the National Health Service you first have to register with a doctor (often referred to as a GP).

Doctors in the United Kingdom have catchment areas. The NHS doctors at The University of Nottingham Health Service have a very large catchment area so you may find this the easiest practice to register with.

Details of all NHS doctors are available from public libraries, post offices, the local Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) and on the website

Food Shopping

Nottingham is a very multicultural city and there are a variety of specialist food retailers proving e.g. halal / kosher food, Eastern European food, Chinese food etc.  In addition to this, many of the larger shops and supermarkets provide produce and spices to cover a wide range of cultural tastes.  Use Google to search for specific shops around Nottingham.
