Change of address

Getting medical care as a student

If you spend more weeks of the year at a university address in our catchment area, you can register with us. This way you can receive emergency care if you need it, and access health services quickly and easily when you are away from home. This is especially important if you have ongoing health conditions, particularly one that needs medicine, such as asthma, diabetes or epilepsy.

If you become ill during the holidays when you are at home or not staying near your university you can contact your nearest practice to ask for treatment.

Young people 16 years old and over

When you turn 16 years old, you can manage your own healthcare needs.

If you would prefer a parent or carer to help manage your care you will have to write to us, giving us consent to speak to your parent or carer. You can withdraw your consent at any time.
