What we do
Our nurse-run health service provides urgent treatment and advice on most ailments and injures during University hours each semester. The team also provides help and guidance relating to disabilities and chronic conditions, taking a holistic approach that engages mind, body and spirit.
If you have a chronic problem or disability, get in touch with us when you arrive at the University, so that we are in the best position to support you when needed.
We provide the following health services to students:
- appointments with doctors and nurses
- urgent treatment and advice for minor illness
- health and lifestyle guidance
- emotional support
- contraceptive advice (and free condoms)
- sexual health advice
Note that the service is not the same as a general practice and so you must register with a General Practitioner (a doctor) near your home when you arrive in London. It is especially important to do this if you have a chronic problem or disability.
How to access the service
Where possible we offer a drop-in service but you can also book an appointment by telephone/email or by popping by and putting your name in the appointment book in each waiting room. We can also answer general health enquiries by telephone and email.
We have clinics at both the Harrow and Marylebone Campuses, and a doctor is available by appointment via the nurses.
In the clinic waiting areas there are a variety of informative leaflets and posters to look through or take away with you, including claim forms to help with your health costs. Also look out for news on the University website about specific issues such as vaccinations and health promotion activities.
Who we are
The nurses are Sue Beeley and Karen Sanderson.
