The Student Health Centre is part of the Student Affairs Divsion which provides a comprehensive range of professional administrative and support services to the entire university campus.

The Student Health Centre is unlikely to reopen for appointments until 28th September when the autumn semester starts.

In line with the current Covid-19 restrictions, our medical services will be delivered by 'telephone triage' so it is important that you telephone first to make an appointment.  These initial consultations will take place over the phone and students will then be advised to come and see our medical staff if necessary in a safe and secure clinical environment.

Please state what specific type of appointment you wish to book e.g. contraceptive, STI screening, dressing, I grade etc.  If your type of appointment does not fall in to any particular category this would be called a general doctor or general nurse appointment.
