Coronavirus Update

If you are worried you may have coronavirus or want to book a test, please go to this link

Online Booking has now been reinstated for appointments - Please use the NHS App to book or to order prescriptions.

Please continue to wear a face covering and use hand sanitiser when you come for an appointment in order to protect staff and other patients.Consultations will continue; these might be offered as face to face, by phone or by video. Our doors are now open but you can continue to book appointments on-line or over the phone. Rememeber, if your question is administrative rather than medical e.g. you need a medical certificate, report, or letter, consider doing this online via e-consultYou can also get advice from a pharmacist or look at the Student Health App for advice. Many phamacists can prescribe for minor illnesses such as eye or urine infections.

RUNNING OUT OF MEDS? You can usually get an emeregncy supply of medication from a chemist by showing your prescription or packet.

BLOOD TESTS - due to a global shortage of blood test tubes, we have been asked to restrict the blood tests we do, to urgent blood tests only or those needed for certain medications. We may therefore ask you to delay less urgent tests and to call back to book them in at a later date.

If you are struggling with mental health issues due to, or made worse by coronavirus, take a look at the University self-help pages, or this page from the Charity Mind.

  • All prescriptions are now sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice for you to collect, not collected from Student Health.
  • We are now fitting coils again and are working from a waiting list If you would like to consider a coil, please book an appointment to speak with one of our coil-fitting GPs
  • Read the most recent advice from the university on coronavirus.
