WHAT RESTRICTIONS WILL LOOK LIKE FROM 19TH JULY 2021
For the time being there will be no changes here at Student Health. Patients coming to the surgery will still need to wear a mask, use the hand sanitiser and socially distance. Our staff will continue to wear appropriate PPE. We have made this decision because often patients coming to the surgery are sick, vulnerable and maybe unvaccinated due to medical reasons, so we feel that these precautions will help to protect everyone. We also need to minimise the number of our staff catching Covid so we can keep a functioning service, so for this reason alone these measures are vital. Our consultations will continue; these might be offered as face to face, by phone or by video. It is worth noting that we are consulting with higher numbers of patients than we ever did before the pandemic, whilst also playing a big part in the vaccination programme too. Our doors are open but just in a different way.We hope you will understand why we need to continue with these measures and keep the surgery as safe for everyone as we can. We have all come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid, let’s continue to stay safe together.
Thank you for helping us keep everyone safe.
We apologise if waiting times on the phone are longer than previously, as more work is being done over the telephone and we have a finite number of telephone lines. If your question is administrative rather than medical e.g. you need a medical certificate, report, or letter, consider doing this online via e-consult.
You can also get advice from a pharmacist or look at the Student Health App for advice.
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, and also our local charity for young people Off The Record.

Our practice has a new way of helping patients contact us for advice. eConsult enables patients to ask questions and seek help - this might be for a fit to study note, a request for a medical or for any other administrative advice. Please do not use this service to request blood tests, nurse or doctor appointments or for any other clinical advice.
