 The Student Health Service is a confidential service available to all students at the University. We work with students to enable  them to access appropriate services and all students should register with a general practitioner (GP) in relation to the postcode area of their term-time address.

Our Services

The Student Health Service Nurse can assist in promoting positive health and wellbeing by providing advice and information on looking after your health. We provide support with health related issues, assistance to access other professionals and advice on a range of health issues, minor illness and common ailments.

Please contact us Monday to Friday for health information and advice, support accessing NHS services or an appointment with our Nurse Denise McElroy.
