I'm very sorry to hear about what's been troubling you. You're not currently registered with a GP is that correct?

Ok thank you. I ask because the process is different if from outside of the EU. So all you need to do is to visit your local GP practice which you can find on Google maps and they will give you a form for registration with the GP. It usually then takes a little while for them to complete your registration and get you an NHS number, then you can see the GP free of charge and get whatever treatment or referral that you need.
