Registering with a Doctor's Surgery
When you move into the area, your spouse and family members must register with a doctor's surgery nearest to your Service Family Accommodation (SFA) or Private Accommodation. Service Personnel are required to register with the Medical Centre on Imjin Barracks on arrival.
A list of surgeries can be obtained from the Unit Welfare Office
To register with a surgery, contact the surgery reception staff who will assist with the process. A spouse and family members will need to complete the information/health forms, as relevant to each surgery. Further information and forms are available on each surgery's website. Your spouse and family members will need to provide proof of identity and address; check with surgeries to confirm the documents required.
If your spouse and family member have a UK medical card, take it to the surgery when registering, if registering a child/children take their immunisation history/book. If you encounter problems when registering with a surgery, do contact the Unit Welfare Officer or the PN Policy Support Officer for assistance.
