How to book an appointment

You will need to register with the University Health Centre before you can book an appointment.

Over the phone

You can book an appointment by calling the Health Centre on +44 (0)117 32 86666. Alternatively, you can make an appointment in person. 

You may be asked some questions by the Reception Team in order to ascertain the most appropriate appointment for you. Some appointments can be dealt with over the phone.

Online booking system

You can use the online booking system to book or cancel an appointment or to request a repeat prescription.

If you have not already registered for this service, you can download the Patient Access app and register online.

When can you be seen?

Routine appointments

You can book up to five days ahead for an appointment at the University Health Centre by calling +44 (0)117 32 86666. We now also offer routine follow-up appointments.

When the Health Centre is closed outside of term time or if you live in Fishponds, you can book an appointment up to two weeks ahead at the Old School Surgery by calling +44 (0)117 653102.

  • The Old School Surgery also offers late surgery sessions: Monday until 19:30 and Tuesday to Friday until 18:30.

Urgent appointments

If you need an urgent appointment, call the Health Centre on +44 (0)117 32 86666. If no suitable appointment is available, we’ll arrange for a clinician to call you back, advise you over the phone, or arrange an alternative appointment for you if necessary – sometimes this may be at the Old School Surgery in Fishponds.

If you have a minor, major or life-threatening condition, please see our urgent medical care page for further guidance.
