Registering with the Medical Centre and Dental Centre

If you're a student or a member of staff, you can register with a doctor and dentist on campus.

Register with the Medical Centre

The Medical Centre on campus is a National Health Service (NHS) practice. If you are a student, you should register within two weeks of arriving at the University.


You can register at the Medical Centre, or at the Medical Centre's stand at the Freshers' Fair.

To register, you will need:

  • to complete a registration form
  • photo identification, like your passport or driving licence – not your NUS or library card
  • your NHS card, if you have it

The Medical Centre is on the south side of campus.

You can book an appointment for:

  • treatment of minor injuries and illnesses
  • immunisations and vaccinations
  • sexual health services
  • counselling

Register with the dentist

The Dental Centre on campus is an NHS practice. You can register as a patient however due to high demand you may have to wait to do this.


Help with costs of prescriptions, dental care and eye tests

If you're under 19 and in full-time education, you don't have to pay for prescriptions, dental treatment or eye tests from the NHS.


If you're 19 or over, you may be able to apply to the NHS Low Income Scheme to get full or partial help with costs. Student loans are considered part of your income when you apply.

Getting medical and dental care if you're an international student

You should register at the Medical Centre and Dental Centre, although you may not be able to have NHS dental treatment, depending on how long you are resident in the UK.


You may also need to pay some additional costs for healthcare.
