Hey again

Got my letter for my Phscyometric test here, and it says bring along a few documents including my National Health Card.

It says i should be able to get this at my gp, who i just visited and said they dont give them out and they never have, he seemed quite confused :S

But anyway he gave me a number to ring, "Practitioners Service Unit".

Do i need to do this? I mean ive got my national health number which is all my doctor seemed too think i needed.

So basically do i need my national health "card" aswell as my national health number?


Any help is appreciated, thanks

The NHS Card is not a means of identity & the number is often on the front of your Birth Certificate anyway. As long as you can provide evidence of your NHS number, that's fine.

Tailz,

Whilst you may not need your NHS card for this, you may need it later in life - as Snappers said, your NHS trust will provide you with one - they did for me and by the looks of things Snappers.

HOWEVER, Uncle Ninja is a recruiting officer, so if you want SPOT ON ADVICE - LISTEN TO UNCLE NINJA - WHAT HE SAYS GOES !!!!!

Edited for typo

Alright, Storms! :) As KLNA says, there are people here who'll know better, but getting a new card will take about three days (as in my case) and it will have a new number. This is important as you will need it in the future and it's a good opportunity to get it sorted.
