Contraception Clinic

At the surgery, we offer a contraception only clinic on a Wednesday between 2pm – 4.30pm. Please ask at reception for an appointment in this clinic or call the surgery for more information.

Chlamydia Testing

We offer chlamydia testing to all our patients under 25. The test is very simple. You will be asked to provide a self-taken vaginal swab for or a 'pee in a pot' urine test. There are also chlamydia tests available at reception which needs to be filled in with your details. We will then send them off for you and once the lab has received the test you will receive a text message with your results.

Don't be concerned if we offer it to you, we are offering it to everyone under 25!

Student Sick Notes

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. A university sick note can be completed by the Nurse Practitioner; you don’t need to see a GP for this.

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.

Medical Forms

Do you have any medical forms that need completing? Camp America or Army for example? Please bring them into our private clinic within the surgery as soon as you receive the form and they can help with this. Please click here for more information

Meningitis Vaccine

'Fresher' students going to university for the first time, including overseas students, are advised to have a vaccination to prevent the Meningitis ACW&Y disease. Older teenagers and University students are at a high risk of contracting the infection due to many of them mixing closely with lots of new people.

Please make an appointment with the Practice Nurse for the Meningitis Vaccine as soon as you register with the surgery.
