Noticeboard

Apr-17: 252 people failed to attend their GP/nurse appointment!  This is equal to 42 hours of wasted appointments!  

With increased demand for GP and nursing services and very little extra funding to facilitate this rise, reducing the DNA (did not attend) rate could make a significant difference to appointment availability.  PLEASE...if you cannot make your appointment, let us know ASAP so we can offer it to someone else.

Documents to Download & Complete

You will need to download the following documents and complete them before coming to register.

  1. Document: GP Services Registration Form

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. 

Medication

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.

International Students

Bring with you (if required) your UK Foreign Commonwealth Office (UK FCO) Visa Tuberculosis Screening Certificate.
