The NHS and You

The National Health Service (NHS) provides a wide range of general and emergency health services, most of which are free.
GPs (or doctors) look after the health of people in their local community and deal with a whole range of health problems.
You should go to the dentist for a check-up every six months. Find all the information you need here.
Your GP surgery can’t cope with everything, and some health queries are referred to hospital for tests or to see a consultant.
