Health & NHS

Civvy Street has a very different approach to providing Healthcare. As soon as you are able, you need to register with a local Doctor’s Surgery.

The good news is, you don’t need to be in best uniform with a bag back to go and talk about an in-growing toenail at 0545 hours, bad news is, you will need to make sure that you understand the appointment system; and they do vary between surgeries.

Find your local Doctors’ Surgeries here:  GP Locator

If you have a minor emergency at home, but feel it is not serious enough to call 999, then call 111, for health advice.


The Forces are well known for their “work hard, play hard” ethos.  Sadly, people seek for ways to cope, and this often manifests in the use of drugs and alcohol for coping.  If you are concerned, then there is a help.  Rehab 4 Alcoholism is a free and impartial helpline for people troubled with drug and alcohol issues.  Rehab 4 Alcoholism aims to save lives by stopping addiction before it becomes too late.
