Why register with a GP at Stoke Campus?
For the first time ALL students (including international students) who register with Harley Street Medical Practice will have an opportunity to have a meningitis vaccination.
Even if you do not want to take up the offer of these vaccinations, we strongly recommend that you register with the Harley Street Medical Practice. You are probably thinking that you won’t need to visit the GP during your time at Staffordshire University, but experience tells us that Students become ill from time-to-time and this may mean that you need to visit a GP. This can prove difficult if your GP surgery is miles away or even on another continent!
Where is the GP based?
Harley Street Medical Practice can be found at Harley Street Medical Centre, Harley Street, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent ST1 3RX.
Harley Street Medical Practice also offers GP sessions during term time from Coalport, halls of residence, on Leek Road at the Stoke Campus.
To make an appointment please call 0300 1231765 and speak to one of the receptionists. All GP receptionists are based at the Hanley surgery so please do not attend the Coalport building unless you have an appointment.
Most appointments will still be delivered remotely but face to face appointments are available where deemed clinically necessary. These will be available from both the Hanley Surgery and on campus in the Coalport Building. Please confirm where to attend when making your appointment.
How do I register?
To register with Harley Street Medical Practice fill out the pre-registration form with your details making sure to complete all questions with a red asterisk, go to the next page and enter 'signature of patient' at the bottom of the form then' send' the completed form and you will be registered within 48 hours of sending the form. Next select 'Questionnaire for New Patients' and print out the form - you must take complete form before your first GP appointment as the practice will need it.
If you are not based at Stoke Campus
We would urge you to ensure that are registered with a GP, whichever campus you are based at. You can find a GP that is local to you via the NHS website.
Please register with the Harley Street Medical Practice as above. It is important that you register with a GP (Doctor) as experience tells us that Students become ill from time and if you need to see a GP or other health professional, it will not be possible to do this, if you have not registered.
You can find more information on our health matters page for international students.
Help with NHS charges

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.
