Healthcare and registering with a GP

Accessing healthcare and the NHS is done by registering with the local GP practice. We have found this to be straightforward. GPs in general seem very welcoming and understanding of the situation.

We suggest that the sponsor contacts the local GP practice ahead of arrival and if possible gathering any forms needed for registration. Then register each guest as soon as possible after arrival.

Individuals arriving under the Homes for Ukraine scheme are able to live and work in the UK for up to three years and access healthcare, benefits, employment support, education and other support.
