Registering with a GP and Dentist

We must stress the importance of registering with a local General Practitioner (GP) when you start university. Having a GP in Cardiff means you can easily access care and medication if you need it. If you don't register and find yourself in a situation where you need medication, you could end up waiting a couple of weeks rather than days.

As GP’s have catchment areas, you will need to find a local GP surgery and contact them about registering with them. You will normally be able to drop in to the surgery and ask to register.

You can also contact the NHS Wales Business Service Centre on +44 (0)1495 332 000, who will allocate you a GP.

Park Place GP Practice

Students living in the catchment area (a map of the catchment area is available at 37 Park Place) are invited to register with the surgery.

Park Place Surgery is open Monday to Friday 12:30-15:30 and operates an appointment system, although new patients may call in between to collect registration documents. For any enquiries relating to advice or appointments please call in or telephone +44 (0)29 2087 0660 during opening hours; out of hours registered patients need to telephone +44 (0)29 2046 1100.
