Student Health

We Welcome all Students

Medical Sick Notes

A doctor's sick note is only needed if illness prevents your study for more than 7 days . The university advises you not to seek retrospective evidence once you are well again.

University Student Notice of Absence

If illness has prevented you from studying for more than 3 days, you should complete a university student notice of absence form and return it to your tutor

If a “To Whom it may concern” letter (TWIMC) is required there will be a charge of £25.00. We also require up to 28 days notice to provide such a letter.

Travel Immunisations

The surgery offers travel advice via a 20 minute appointment with the practice nurse.

We advise that you attend for travel advice at least 3 months before your planned travel to ensure that you have received all required vaccinations before you travel.

Please click on Non-NHS Services for a list of immunisations' fees.
