    I am an international student. I registered with the NHS while in college. It's been 2 years since I finished college and I am now in the second year of university. I registered with the doctor at the student accommodation in my first year but i am not registered to any GP this year as I have moved out of student accommodation. I have lost all of my NHS details, I do not have an nhs card or registration number.
    How can I get them back? Should I call the NHS? Can I register with a new GP without the details?
    I would really appreciate any help.

    You need to write to the local Primary Care Trust, to request your NHS card.

    Find out your local PCT by going to http://www.nhs.uk/servicedirectories...stListing.aspx

    I would think however that your last GP should still have your records kicking around seeing as youve not technically moved until youre registered somewhere else.

    You don't need NHS card to register with the GP. They may ask you for a proof of your student status (student ID card is usualy enough) to ensure that you are entaitled to free NHS care.
