 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

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.
