Noticeboard

On Thursday 20th September during Fresher's Week we are holding a flu drop-in clinic.  We will not be holding normal clinics on this evening.

Please note the clinic is only for patients between 18 & 64 years of age who are at risk, due to an existing medical condition.  The flu drop-in clinic will be running from 5.30 - 8pm.  No appointment is necessary.

Help Is Only A Call Away ...

999 and A&E Departments are for life threatening emergencies. For everything else call 111 for free, 24/7. Trained staff can give you immediate health advice and direct you to the right care in your area. Choose well and help ease the pressure on NHS services this winter!

Have You Had Your Meningitis ACWY Vaccine Before Coming To University?

YES - If the answer is YES brilliant, the vaccine will protect you against some of the most common causes of bacterial meningitis in the UK. (You still need to register with us as you never know when you might need us). 

NO - If the answer is NO, you need to get it NOW! Please come to the health centre to register and if you are under the age of 25 ask for your Meningitis ACWY vaccine. 

Make sure you know the signs and symptoms of Meningitis and Septicaemia as vaccines don't protect you against all types! For more information visit: https://www.meningitisnow.org/

Travelling Abroad

If you need medication for a stable long-term health condition, we can supply you with a prescription for extra supply of medication to cover your holiday abroad. The maximum duration of additional medications supplied on the NHS is 3 months for most medications.

Before we can supply you with medication to cover your holiday, the GP will need to consider factors such as the type of medication you are taking and local polices around supply of medication to cover long holidays. For example, if you are taking a medicine which requires you to have regular monitoring or blood tests, your GP will need to consider this. Therefore, you should arrange to see your GP several weeks before you go away on holiday to discuss this.


Flying With Medication 

If you are flying with medication you may require a letter from your GP stating why you need to carry this medication in your hand luggage i.e. insulin. Please contact the surgery several weeks before you go away regarding this. 


Check what medication you can take

Before you travel, find out if there are any restrictions on taking your medicine in and out of:

  • the UK
  • the country you're visiting

Some medicines available over the counter in the UK may be controlled in other countries. For more information, see Can I take my medicine abroad? and What is a controlled medicine (drug)?
