“Fresher” students going to university for the first time should make sure they’ve had the MenACWY vaccine to prevent meningitis and septicaemia, which can be deadly. This is normally given in school years 9 or 10 but if you missed out please make an appointment to have it at the surgery.
As there are outbreaks of mumps and measles at universities if you haven’t previously had 2 doses of the MMR vaccine please give us a call (or book online) to arrange this.
Covid vaccinations are now available for all adults and students approaching their 18th birthday (those within 3 months of their 18th birthday are now eligible). Please telephone 01608 692115 to make an appointment.
NHS App – the NHS app is intended for use by anyone age 16 and over. In addition to the Covid Pass it also enables you to book appointments, view your medical record and order repeat prescriptions.
Are your details up to date?
Now is a good time to check that the information recorded on your medical record is up to date. Do we have an up to date mobile number and email address for you (rather than your parents)? Please feel free to email your details to this email and we will update your record accordingly.
There will be plenty of information about this available at uni but if you want to have a conversation before you go or want some advice about contraception we have set up some special sexual health clinics in August with one of our nurses. Advice is completely confidential and appointments can either be face to face or over the telephone. Appointments are available to book online or over the telephone.
