If you experience a medical emergency, dial 111 and notify security on extension 4444 (07 838 4444).

Manage My Health

If you are enrolled with Student Health Clinic please consider registering with the online patient portal, Manage My Health.

This enables you to make appointments, request repeat prescriptions and seek health advice by email from your GP or Nurse Practitioner.


No appointment is necessary to see our team of friendly and very experienced nurses. Simply drop-in to see them. They are able to manage many everyday health concerns, for example sore throats, urinary tract infections and sexually transmitted infections. Just ask to speak to the nurse. There are also always urgent on the day doctor appointments which the nurses can access if needed.

You are welcome to bring a support person along to any of your appointments.

Routine appointments can be made:

  • at the reception desk
  • by phoning 07-838-4037
  • online via Managemyhealth patient portal if you have signed up and are an enrolled patient
