HEPATITIS VACCINE SHORTAGES - There is currently a Global shortage of both Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B vaccines which is expected to last until early 2018. Because of this, in line with the recommendations from Public Health England, we are currently unable to offer these vaccines.

Jul-17: 194 people failed to attend their GP/nurse appointment!  This is equal to 32.5 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.

National Health Service (NHS) Number 

Your NHS number is unique to you and shows you are registered as a patient of your present doctor. If you do not know your NHS number, please contact your current GP surgery to obtain this as you will need it to register.  (If you are from overseas, then you will not have an NHS number so please ignore this)

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. 

Medication

Bring enough medication to last you the first month 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.
