We encourage you to register and make use of the GP service most convenient for your campus. Please familiarise yourself also with the procedures for self-certificating after a period of illness as well as obtaining a medical certificate for longer absences.

Health Centre

At our Edinburgh Campus we have a purpose-built health centre housing the University Health Service and Dental Practice, which provides a full range of UK National Health Service (NHS) medical and dental services.

Registering with the Centre

You can register as a new patient at the Centre at any time. Please remember that you must be registered to receive its services.

To register with the Doctor you will need to complete a General Practice Registration (GPR) form. The registration forms can be downloaded from the Medical Practice website or by visiting the Health Centre.

Once you have registered you will have access to a range of healthcare services.

Services and staff available

The centre has a full complement of medical, dental and nursing staff, as well as a community team that provides services such as psychiatric nursing, midwifery, health visiting and district nursing on a sessional basis.

There is also a private (non-NHS) physiotherapy service and private (non-NHS) podiatry service.
