Students' Health Service

We offer a full NHS GP service for University students and their families

Coronavirus Update

 ** Please call us if you need medical help - please do not go to hospital unless it is an accident or an emergency.

If you are worried you may have coronavirus please go to 111 online. The NHS online service will take you through the symptoms of coronavirus and help direct you towards the right advice and support. Please do NOT come to the Student Health Service. If you think you have coronavirus, you can also now book a test on-line here

All consultations at Student Health will be by telephone in the first instance, so please do not turn up at without first speaking to a GP. If you call to request an appointment, a doctor will call you back who will either treat and advise on the phone, or make an appointment for you to come into the Students' Health Service. 

Below is a common selection of questions that patients are asking.

  1. Prescriptions will now sent electronically to a nominated pharmacy for you to collect, not collected from Student Health.
  2. We are not fitting coils for the moment. If you require a prescription for contraception then please contact us. We will also not be removing coils unless there is a significant problem.
  3. We will extend contraceptive prescribing so you do not need to attend for review.
  4. You do not need either a medical certificate or a sick note for University or your employer if you have to self isolate for coronavirus, or have the symptoms of coronavirus. You can obtain an isolation sick note via NHS 111
  5. We will continue to undertake blood tests if needed. 
  6. If you have asthma, please continue to take your inhalers (including your steroid inhalers) as usual.

We will continue to support you through this difficult time. Thank you all for your support and understanding.
