# Register with a GP service
You will need to register with a GP service before you can book an appointment to see a doctor or nurse. Only students with a CV1-CV6 postcode can register at the Coventry University GP. If you are outside of this postcode, go to the NHS website to find another local NHS GP service (opens new window).
It is a good idea to register when you arrive so that you can get an appointment as soon as you need medical advice.
Remember, you can only be registered with one medical practice at any one time.
# Register with Coventry University Medical Centre
To register with the Medical Centre, you need to:
- Log in to the student portal and complete the online registration (opens new window).
- Make sure you select submit your registration form at the bottom of the page.
# Check your emails and activate your online booking account
Once registered, you will receive an email with your access details on the online booking service. Use this to book appointments with doctors and nurses online.
Please look at your email and activate your online booking account. This is the easiest way to make appointments and order repeat prescriptions.
