Ways to get in touch, surgery and reception opening times and where to go when the Health Centre is closed.

University Health Centre summer closure

The University Health Centre will close at 16:30 on Friday 15 June 2018 and will re-open at 08:30 on Monday 3 September 2018.

If you require an appointment over the summer please contact The Old School Surgery on +44 (0)117 965 3102. They’ll be open as usual, except for the public Bank Holidays. If you're not already registered with the University Health Centre or The Old School Surgery you can register to join online.

Alternatively, if you become ill whilst staying at home you could be seen at your family GP as a temporary patient.

Prescription requests after 15 June 2018

Please send in your prescription requests to the University Health Centre by Friday 15 June 2018 so we can process them before the summer closure. If you need to send a prescription request after Friday 15 June 2018, you can visit The Old School Surgery to complete a repeat prescription request form. However, please be aware that prescriptions take three working days to process.

Prescription requests in your home town

If you’ve gone home and realise you need medication, you can request that your prescription is sent to a pharmacy in your home town. To do this:

  1. send a letter to The Old School Surgery stating the medication you’ll need and the name and full postal address (including postcode) of the pharmacy where you want the prescription to be sent.
  2. when you return to the University in September, visit the Health Centre or The Old School Surgery in person to verbally request that your prescription is sent to a pharmacy in Bristol.
