Home students can register with the University Health Centre when you enrol for your course. Registration will take place on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd September between 9am-4.30pm

Please note that this is a normal GP surgery and not a Walk-in Centre, therefore you will need to be registered to access an appointment. The registration forms can be downloaded from the . Please fill these in before you arrive as this will minimise the time taken to process your registration. If you have a medical condition, are undergoing treatment at the hospital, or are taking repeat medication please bring this information with you when you register.

If you are unable to register on the dates above you should do it at the Health Centre during your first week at University or as soon as possible, so that your medical records will be available when you do need to see a GP or Nurse.

New MenACWY vaccination for first-time university entrants:

NHS England are advising that first-time university entrants should be vaccinated with Meningococcal ACWY (MenACWY) vaccine BEFORE the beginning of the new academic term.

You should be hearing from your GP from August with the offer of the vaccination, however if you have not heard from your GP contact them to request the MenACWY vaccination. If you have not had the vaccination when you register, this will be available at this time or an appointment made within the next few weeks. Flu vaccinations will also be available for patients who need them.
