JOB VACANCIES!  We are recruiting! Salaried GP(s) - click on our Job Vacancies page for details! 

APPOINTMENTS: "Keep it or cancel it!  Don't waste it!"  Ever wondered why it can be difficult to get an appointment with a GP/Nurse?  Last month, 222 people failed to attend their booked appointment!  This is equal to 37 hours of wasted appointments!!! This is such a waste of NHS time and appointments are in high demand.  PLEASE...if you cannot make your appointment - cancel it! 

Are you Eligible to Register?

To be eligible to register at the UEA Medical Centre you must meet the following 3 criteria:
 
  • You must have an affiliation with the university or research park (see below)
  • You must be entitled to NHS Care (see below)
  • Your Norwich address is within our practice boundary (click here to view)

Our NHS contract requires us to provide home visits to all patients registered with us.  If you live outside our boundary, we are not able to provide this service, therefore you will need to register with a GP closer to where you live.  Visit NHS Choices - find a GP to search.

  • University student or staff member
  • An employee of the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital or organisation in the Norwich Research Park

Are you Eligible for NHS care?

The NHS operates a residence-based healthcare system. 

Most NHS services are free to people who are ordinarily resident in the UK. 

Generally, NHS care is free for those;

  • ordinarily resident in the UK (which means living in the UK on a lawful and properly settled basis for the time being)
  • insured by an EEA member state with a valid EHIC or S1 form
  • covered under the Immigration Health Charge 
  • exempt in law eg; refugees, asylum seekers, victims of modern slavery, people covered under reciprocal healthcare agreements with the UK   

Even if you are ordinarily resident here or are generally exempt from charge for your NHS care, some NHS services are not free such as prescriptions, opticians and dentistry.
