Drop In Flu Clinic

If you are aged 65 or over, pregnant or have a long-term health condition then you are eligible for the flu vaccine. Drop in flu clinic will be held on Thursday 14th September 2017 at 5:30pm - 8:00pm (adults only). Appointments are available please speak to reception. If you do not wish to have the vaccine please inform us so we can update our records accordingly. Thank you. 


Have You Had Your Meningitis ACWY Vaccine Before Coming To University?

YES - If the answer is YES brilliant, the vaccine will protect you against some of the most common causes of bacterial meningitis in the UK. (You still need to register with us as you never know when you might need us). 

NO - If the answer is NO, you need to get it NOW! Please come to the health centre to register and if you are under the age of 25 ask for your Meningitis ACWY vaccine. 

Make sure you know the signs and symptoms of Meningitis and Septicaemia as vaccines don't protect you against all types! For more information visit: https://www.meningitisnow.org/

We are changing the way our repeat prescription service works... 

From the 1st May 2016 you will no longer be able to order your medications over the phone. Don't panic - there are lots of ways to order your medications;

  • Online - register for online request of repeat medications and appointments.
  • Once you have online access, you can use the patient access app to request your medication - see leaflet how repeat prescriptions will change.
  • Written request (posted to the surgery).
  • Ordering your request in person, at the reception desk.

(If you do not have access to the internet you may continue to telephone your repeat prescription request).

Please allow at least 48 hours for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.


Repeat Prescriptions

At your registration health check details of on-going medication will be taken. When you need a new supply, contact the Health Centre in person, online or by letter, giving details of your request. Your prescription will be ready within 48 hours.

Please note - the ‘pill’ - oral contraceptive - is not automatically a repeat drug. Please make a clinic appointment - we have 5 sexual health clinics per week which are run by a nurse and a doctor, please request your appointment in one of these clinics rather than a normal GP clinic appointment.


Electronic Prescription Service

As from 12th August 2014 we are going live with EPS (Electronic Prescription Service), this means when you request a repeat prescription from the Health Centre you can collect the prescription  straight from your nominated Pharmacy/Chemist.
