urgent medical care advice needed

Hi folks

someone in my party has developed an abscess in their 'particulars' since being here. It is now very very painful for them but we have absolutely no idea how to go about getting treatment over here. Is any healthcare provided for UK residents and how expensive will it be for a consultation etc? will travel insurance cover the bills?

The person in question has actually had one before which got very severe and had to be operated on a few years ago.

any help would be appreciated!!! I know i shouldnt be asking on here really since it is a travel forum, but we're all a bit panicky about it
