Nurse and Medical Services
The Nursing Service is here to provide you with practical advice and assistance regarding medical needs while you are studying with us. The Nurse can assist with a number of practical issues, such as:
- General health advice, such as smoking, diet, on-going illness or health concerns
- Contraception advice and pregnancy risk assessments
- Advice on how to register with a GP or a dentist and how to claim costs
- Provide non-prescription analgesics
- Treat cuts, burns, scalds and any other minor injuries
- Information on immunisations
- Advice with completing the HC1 form (which could entitle you to reduced costs on NHS prescription charges or dental treatment if you are eligible)
The service, like all the others provided by Student Services, is free and confidential. There is no need to book an appointment with the Nurse. A drop-in service is offered in Room 730, situated behind the Student Services Reception, 7th Floor, Summer Row.
