General Practitioners: Students

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN 13855, tabled on 10 June 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what assessment his Department has made of the potential merits of a dual-GP registration system for university students.

It is not possible for patients to register with two general practitioner (GP) practices at the same time. However, we recognise that students registered with a university GP practice may wish to access treatment from another GP when returning home or when away from university. Students are therefore able to register as a temporary resident at another GP practice.
