One of the first things you should do when you arrive in the UK is sign-up with your local GP.

You need to be registered with a doctor before you can use their services. Some GPs may not be accepting new patients so you may need to call around to find a space. You should be able to find one nearby your home pretty easily though and it’s easy to change if you move. 

Find out how to register with a GP.

Many of the cheap UK travel insurance plans require you to be registered with a GP before they will cover you (which many people probably don’t know unless they read the fine print).

TIP: One thing that you’ll find useful to know is that the postcodes in the UK are specific enough (down to certain houses on a particular street) so that you can use it to perform just about any search on most websites, instead of having the enter the whole address.
