Registering with a GP when at University

Having a GP (general practitioner) and access to other healthcare professionals in University means you can easily access care if you need it.

If you spend more weeks of the year at your University address than elsewhere, you need to register with a GP local to your Study as soon as possible so that you can receive routine and urgent care if you need it.

This is especially important if you have an ongoing health condition, particularly one that needs medicine, such as asthma, diabetes, epilepsy or mental health issues.

Meningitis vaccine

Meningitis can affect anyone, but it’s most common in teenagers and young adults.

Meningitis is an infection of the protective membranes (meninges) that surround the brain and spinal cord. The inflammation that results from this can lead to damage of the brain and spinal cord nerves and can be life-threatening. Meningitis is usually caused by a bacteria or a virus.
