The surgery hopes that local university students can register with us and we recognize that university is an exciting but also busy time in a young persons life. That is why we have put together this informative page to help new and current students access the best healthcare possible at a convenience to you.
How can I register as a patient?
To register with us you just need to fill out our registration form that can be found on our website under the "new patients" section, feel free to print this off and fill out or pop into the surgery and ask for a form at reception.
Once you have registered with us your previous medical record will be sent over so that we can properly provide you with the best healthcare.
What kind of appointments can I access? Do I have to come into the Surgery for all of them?
We can provide same day GP and Minor Ill appointments as well as pre-bookable appointments up to 2 weeks in advance. We also have a range of other clinics available for specific conditions such as mental health, asthma, contraception and many more.
If you struggle to find the time to come into the surgery for an appointment, we also offer telephone call back appointments, you can just call the surgery and ask for a GP or other clinician to give you a call back on the same day to discuss your health concerns. Please note that these same day appointments are offered up until 12pm and pre-bookable telephone appointments are also available.
