Register with a Doctor, Dentist, and Bank at Bonar Hall



You need to be registered with a local doctor (GP) to effectively access free NHS healthcare and prescription charges in Scotland. Hawkhill, Nethergate, and Ryehill will be here for registration.


You can have a free checkup at Dundee Dental Hospital and School or register with Hunter and Wight.
If you register with an NHS dentist, the checkups are free but you will have to pay for treatment.


If you don't have a UK bank account, or need to update you current account to a student account with added benefits, there'll be staff from Barclays and Clydesdale available to help.

Other banks, dentists, and doctors are available throughout Dundee and Kirkcaldy.
Details of other GPs and dentists can be found at NHS 24


Welcome meeting

This will be an opportunity for you to meet staff in person and to learn more about the School. Followed by a wine and nibbles reception where you can meet your fellow students, new and continuing, and have the chance to talk to members of staff more informally.
