Documents to Download & Complete
You will need to download the following documents and complete them before coming to register.
- Document: GP Services Registration Form
- Document: Health Questionnaire
National Health Service (NHS) Medical Card
This is the card which shows that you are registered as a patient of your present doctor. If you do not have your cards, please contact your current GP surgery and obtain your NHS number which you will need in order to register.
Medical History & Serious Illness or On-going Treatment
If you have had a serious illness, if you are currently undergoing medical treatment or hospital investigation, or if you are currently taking medication, then a brief doctor's letter (in English) summarising your medical history, will help the Medical Centre to provide you with uninterrupted health care.
Please do not send this but bring it with you when you register at the Medical Centre. You are responsible for any fee your doctor may charge.
Bring enough medication to last you the first couple of weeks at university until you have seen a doctor at the medical centre.
Medical Insurance (overseas students)
Details of your medical insurance to cover general practice, specialist and hospital care if your stay in the UK is less than 6 months (unless you are from the EU or a country with reciprocal health care agreements with the UK) and you will not be eligible for free NHS care.
Bring with you (if required) your UK Foreign Commonwealth Office (UK FCO) Visa Tuberculosis Screening Certificate.
