Information on Healthcare in Scotland.

Health care in Scotland is provided by NHS Scotland. If you have relocated from outside the EU, you (and your accompanying family members) will have paid NHS surcharges as part of your application fee.

Most healthcare in Scotland has no extra charge. The exceptions are dental care and eye care. NHS dentists are subsidised by the government, however, there is usually a small charge to pay depending on the treatment you require. Opticians don't charge for testing your eyes, but any treatment required is chargeable. There are many Opticians and Dentists in Edinburgh, it is worth looking around to find one that best suits your needs.

You should try to register with a Doctor, known as a GP and Dentist as quickly as possible.
