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 in Trent Building, on the Leek Road at the Stoke Campus
