If you are unable to join us but would like to submit a name, we will be honoured to paint a rock for you.

Health Care in the UK

The medical care system here may work quite differently to your home country. It is vital that you register with a local GP (General Practitioner) as soon as possible, especially if you are an international student. PLEASE do not wait until you are feeling unwell.

To find a GP surgery near you go to https://www.nhs.uk/service-search/find-a-gp and enter your postcode.

PLEASE DO NOT go to the hospital for anything minor!

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Medway Campus Chaplain, or your student advice centre or the student union for further advise.
