Noticeboard

CORONAVIRUS: If you are unwell and have recently travelled to an area affected by Coronavirus or met someone who has, DO NOT visit a GP surgery, community pharmacy or hospital.  Call 111, stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people.  Click here for further information... 

MUMPS OUTBREAK: Mumps in the UK are at a 10 year high.  The full MMR vaccine (2 doses) can reduce the severity of this infectious disease if you do contract it.  It is FREE on the NHS. If you have not had the vaccine, call us to book.  Further information: www.nhs.uk/conditions/mumps

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 2-3 months 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.
