Please do not forget to register at the Student Health Centre (BLOCK G) for all of your medical needs and advice. The services we provide are tailored specifically to students.
We have registration packs available to pick up from the student and wellbeing reception desk and at the Health Centre.
CLOSED FOR THE SUMMER
The Student Health Centre is now closed until next semester. If you have queries you can contact us at the Monkgate Surgery on 01904 206862. All your prescriptions and letters will be available from the Monkgate Surgery.
A message for all our students who will be returning in September.
If you are going home for the summer and need medical attention all you need to do is Temporary Register with your home GP service. If you need repeat medication please contact this surgery and we can arrange this.
If you chose to re-register fully at your home GP Service your records will be removed from the Health Centre and when you return you will need to re-register here which means that you will need to see a GP or nurse to have your repeat medication put back on your records. Please be aware that you do not need to register at home for an acute illness you can be seen as a Temporary Resident.
Students can now register online for the student health centre using our new service from campus doctor. It's a quick and easy way for new and returning students to register with the surgery. We do suggest you don't register using this system until 7th,8th and 9th of September as you will be removed from your current surgery.
MSK Physio Referral
There is a new comprehensive website for self-help for MSK problems. There is lots of advice on the page relating to MSK issues and you can now self-refer for the physio service too. Just follow the link here.
We need time to be able to issue a repeat prescription, as they need to be signed by a doctor and in some cases, they will need to be reviewed. If you are on regular medication, it is your responsibility to make sure that you do not run out of your mediation. Request your repeat prescription in plenty of time (a couple of weeks before you run out), or if you need a review (such as those on the pill) make sure you book an appointment in good time. It can take up to a week to get an appointment when we are busy, so think ahead!
Do you suffer from a long-term condition?
If you suffer from a long-term condition and are on regular medication, it is important that you register with us straight away and make an appointment with the nurse. This is so that we can regularly review your condition and medication. We also have a Long Term Conditions page which provides lots of useful information.
