Health centre and dentists

Edinburgh campus

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

Registering as a new patient

Please see the medical centre student registration webpage and/or the new dental patients form for more information.

Services available

The department 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.

Once you have registered, you will have access to range of healthcare services. There is also a private (non-NHS) physiotherapy service and a private (non-NHS) podiatrist.
