Website Manager Note: Title should read "register two permenant GP surgeries" I failed to see this when grammar checking the idea

As it stands students are unable to to access medical help a lot of the time as they are only allowed to register permenantly at one GP surgery (you can get temporarily registered at another but this is impractical a lot of the time for students who move back and forth a lot of the time at short notice)

There's currently a petition to the governement - https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/229573 to allow students to be permentantly registered at both a home and university address, this means students can access help quickly whenever they need it. 

I've seen some other student unions do some work on this to help promote the petition and I think we should join in and help the petition grow and make people more aware of the idea. So that everyone can easily get the medical help they deserve.
