Health Information for Students

Registering with a Doctor

In your own interest, the College strongly recommends that you register with a Cambridge doctor by the end of your first week in Cambridge. A list of Cambridge doctors and their addresses can be viewed in the Health Centre (P staircase).

GP Registration Form - Please complete this form as soon as you have registered with a GP and no later than the second week of Michaelmas Term.

NHS Choices

The UKs biggest health website, NHS Choices provides a comprehensive health information service with thousands of articles, videos and tools, helping you to make the best choices about your health and lifestyle, but also about making the most of NHS and social care services in England.

NHS Student Healthcare Guide - A very useful guide for all students provided by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commission Group.

Dental Care

To find a Dentist in Cambridge, please use the NHS Choices website (listed above).  Please note that the University Dental Service no longer exists and is now an ordinary dental practice which no longer specialises in students.

Allergies

Students who have had a serious allergic reaction should record this on their Health Questionnaire and will be seen by the college nurse to discuss their allergy. If you have an Epipen this should be carried AT ALL TIMES and you must be prepared to self-administer it if you feel a reaction coming on.

If you are allergic to any foodstuffs, you should inform the Catering Manager before booking yourself into a Formal Hall.

Communicable Diseases

It is important that you read the communicable diseases information pdf via this link, to understand your responsibilities in avoiding the spread of disease.
