Sept-17: 203 people failed to attend their GP/nurse appointment!  This is equal to 34 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.

Hepatitis B vaccine shortage 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.

UEA Medical Certificates for Students

We produce medical certificates to provide evidence in support of extenuating circumstances for deadline assessments and event assessments. 

In the first instance, students must self-certify their first and second episode of illness in each academic year. 

If you have already self-certified TWICE within the current academic year, only then, is it appropriate to request a medical certificate from the UEA Medical Centre.  You must see a doctor or nurse to get this certificate, unless you have already been seen by a doctor or nurse regarding the condition concerned (see below).   

Completed certificates are emailed directly to your Hub. 

Request Form for Medical Certificate (after seeing a doctor or nurse)

This form is only appropriate if you have already seen a doctor or nurse at the UEA Medical Centre recently, about the condition concerned.  You may still need a further appointment to discuss the certificate - we will email you if this is the case. Otherwise, the completed certificate will be emailed directly to your HUB, within 10 working days.

Absence reporting (up to 7 days)

If you wish to report an absence on medical grounds for up to 7 consecutive days where such absence does not involve attendance at a course test, assessed practice or seminar at which a student was scheduled to give a presentation, or submission of a item of assessed work, then you can self certify and do not need a medical certificate.  Please see
