    GP, dentist and surgery appointments

    Register with a local doctor

    Linden Hall Surgery is based in the near-by town of Newport. You will be able to register with the surgery on registration day at the beginning of the academic year. Prescriptions can also be collected here. During university holidays you can be seen by your home doctor as a temporary resident.

    To make an appointment with a GP, please call the surgery directly.

    NHS 111

    You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation.

    Call 111 if:

    • you need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency
    • you think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
    • you don't know who to call or you don't have a GP to call
    • you need health information or reassurance about what to do next

    For less urgent health needs, contact your GP or local pharmacist in the usual way.
