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

University Health Centre Easter closure

The University Health Centre will close at 16:30 on Friday 12 April 2019 and will re-open at 08:30 on Monday 29 April 2019.

If you’re registered with us you can be seen at the Old School Surgery. They’ll be open as usual, except for the public Bank Holidays. You can pop in to complete a white repeat medication ordering form at this branch.

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.

If you get unwell when the Old School Surgery is closed or out of hours, you can get medical assistance/advice from a local pharmacy, NHS Walk-in Centre or by calling 111.

If you become ill whilst staying at home you could be seen at your family GP as a temporary patient. This will save you re-registering on your return to the University.
