We have registration packs available to pick up at our surgery and also at the student advice desk in Holgate. You will also need to complete the new patient questionnaire. Alternatively you may print off a registration form, fill it out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.
Students can now register online for the student health centre using our new service from campus doctor. Its a quick and easy way for new and returning students to register with the surgery. We do suggested you dont register using this system until 7th,8th and 9th of September as you will be removed from your current surgery.
Staying over 6 months:
International students studying for over 6 months are eligible to register permanently with the Health Centre. To register we will need you to fill out a registration pack, (available at the Health Centre) and bring a photocopy of your passport.
Staying for less than 6 months:
For students staying for less than 6 months, you can register as a temporary resident. You will not need to do anything until you need to make an appointment at the Health Centre.
All students please ensure you download and complete the registration form, new patient questionnaire and summary care record and hand in to reception when you register.
All students currently at York St. John University are eligible to register with the Student Health Centre. It is best to do this when you first arrive to be able to see a doctor quickly if you become ill. Please don't wait until you become unwell before you register with us because we need time to get your details from your existing GP practice.
Please note that when you fill out this registration form, 'home address' is your term address, so where you will be living in York. Your 'previous address' should be the address you have left to come to university.
New patient questionnaire
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a health questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. Please fill this out and hand back in to the surgery.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
A Guide For Patients
Information about you is used in a number of ways by the NHS and social care services to support your personal care and to improve health and social care services for everyone. The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) is the national NHS organisation with a legal responsibility to collect data as people make use of NHS and social care services. The data is used both at a local level and nationally to help with planning, managing your care, supporting research into new treatments, identifying trends and issues and so forth, and is used to try to make services better for all. You can, however, choose not to have information about you shared or used for any purpose beyond providing your own treatment or care.
You will also need to consider whether you would like a Summary Care Record made for you.
The NHS in England is introducing the Summary Care Record, which will be used in emergency care. The record will contain information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had to ensure those caring for you have enough information to treat you safely. Your summary care record will be available to authorised healthcare staff providing your care anywhere in England, but they will ask permission before they look at it. This means that if you have an accident or become ill, healthcare staff treating you will have immediate access to important information about your health. Your GP practice is supporting Summary Care Records and as a patient you have a choice:
You can choose not to have anything that could identify you shared beyond your GP practice. You can also choose for the HSCIC not to share information it collects from all health providers any further. If you have previously told your GP practice that you don't want the HSCIC to share your personal confidential information for purposes other than your own care and treatment, your opt-out will have been implemented by the HSCIC from April 29 2016. It will remain in place unless you change it. Simply contact your GP either to register an opt-out or end an opt-out you have already registered and they will update your medical record. Your GP practice will also be able to confirm whether or not you have registered an opt-out in the past. You can find more information about how the HSCIC handles your information and choices and how it manages your opt-out on the HSCIC website www.hscic.gov.uk/yourinfo
More information about the Summary Care Record is available here .
If you are ill at University but not registered with us, you can still make an appointment as a temporary resident. Similarly, if you are registered with the Student Health Centre, and you become unwell whilst you are in your home town over the holidays, you can register at your old surgery as a temporary resident. If you go home and register as a permanent resident in your home town, you will have to re-register back at the Student Health Centre.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the Health Centre. However, Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
