There are a myriad of details that you’ll have to sort out after your relocation to London. Details that you can only attend to once you arrive, and are in situ. If you’re planning your international relocation and don’t know where to start, get professional help and consult with one of the London relocation services companies. Not only can they help find you an apartment in a day, but also they can provide you with a check list of things that you will need to do after moving to London.

Register with a Physician

This is one of the things that you should do as soon as you have moved into your new flat. Ask your London relocation agents for a list of doctors and surgeries that are within walking distance of your new home before you move in.

Nearly all health care and hospital treatment is free for you and your family as soon as you have a work visa. To be eligible for the National Health Services in the United Kingdom though, you have to register, in person at a local doctor or surgery (doctor’s rooms) in your neighbourhood. It can take up to three weeks to get your application processed, so it is important that you make this a priority when planning the details of your relocation to London.

Your doctor will have to see both you and your spouse or partner, and any children that you have in person. You may not register for your family members.  In addition, you will need to have some official paperwork when you visit the doctor. Your proof of address is first which is why it can be beneficial to use one of the professional London relocation agents to handle your accommodation details. They will have a rental agreement for you, which will state your addresses so you can register at a doctor.

Take along your passport and work so the doctor can process your application to the NHS. There are so many things that your relocation agents will be able to help you with when you are moving, and although you have to register in person, your London relocation agents will be able to help you with the paperwork, as well as a list of doctors in your neighbourhood.
