Registering for Medical Care Whilst at University
Important Information for New Students/Patients
In order to receive health care whilst at university, you need to register with us.
It is a university regulation that you register with a general practitioner (GP) in the Norwich area.
If you are in the UK for 6+ months and live within our practice boundary area, we are here to provide care and support for you should you need it during your time at university. Our doctors and nurses are very experienced in dealing with students and all contact with us is strictly confidential.
NEW STUDENTS - Please register no more than 7 days prior to arriving in Norwich (in case you continue to need GP services until that time)
HOW TO REGISTER - DO IT ONLINE NOW!
It is quick, easy, you do not need to download any forms, there is no need to come into the medical centre and no need to queue up and wait!
It takes 5 minutes to complete - as soon as you have your full/confirmed campus address, sign up via www.campusdoctor.co.uk/umsuea
**Online registration link: www.campusdoctor.co.uk/umsuea
Online registration is quicker and our preferred method, but you can still register with us in person if you wish - come to the medical centre between the hours of 10am-4pm, Monday to Friday. Please just be aware you may encounter some queuing. If you choose to register in person, just make sure you bring your campus card plus download, print and complete the registration forms below;
- Document: GP Services Registration Form
- Document: Health Questionnaire
Please help us to help you, by trying to register as soon as you arrive at university.
International students should try and register immediately as TB screening may be required (see below for details)...
! Tuberculosis (TB) screening
If you are from overseas, you may need to be screened for TB if you come from a country with a high prevalence of this disease. Click on the 'Tuberculosis Screening' tab above for further information and a list of high risk TB countries. If your country appears on this list, please register as soon as possible online or in person.
TB screening is free.
! Failure to comply with the TB screening is a breach of university regulations and may lead to suspension from the university and exclusion from campus.
NB/Registration with a GP in the Norwich area does not preclude you from consulting your family GP (or indeed any other GP) during vacations or while away from university (although when you do this a 'Temporary Resident' form will have to be completed on these occasions). Click on Temporary Residents tab above for further information.
