About Student Health Services
NHS medical services are available to students at our Stoke campus. Surgeries are held each weekday during term-time.
It is a condition of the National Health Service that you register with a doctor close to your term-time address if planning to live there for more than three months.
There are doctors who provide full GP services at the Stoke campus and you will need to register with them. To choose a different surgery, or if you are based on the Lichfield or Shrewsbury campuses you can call the local Primary Care Trust on 01785-220004 or visit the NHS website
To register with a GP you will need:
Your new term-time address and postcode
Name, address and postcode of your previous Doctor
Details of your past immunisations
Repeat prescription details
Help with NHS charges
An application form (HC1) for help with NHS charges is available from the Student Advice Centres (in the Students' Union) or either of the Student GP Practices, renewable every six months.
Tip: Most people become liable to pay for prescriptions when they reach 19, so it is advisable to attend for any necessary dental, optical and other NHS consultations before your 19th birthday.
