At Students’ Health Service we are constantly aiming to improve the service we provide. In response to patient feedback we have made some signficant changes to the options you will have for getting help from us.
Whenever possible the website should be your first point of contact. New for this term you will find here the ‘webGP’ icon. Here you can find useful advice including a symptom checker, self-help guides and details of ways to contact the practice, including sending your doctor an e-consult for many common problems.
In addition to our doctors we have an experienced team of nurses, many of whom are prescribers (can write prescriptions for medicines), and new for 2016 we are going to have a clinical pharmacist too. To help you to see the right person for your needs, there is a guide to booking your appointment on the SHS website.
Whilst you can of course still come in to the practice, or telephone reception, it will now also be possible to book appointments online too. You can ask for a PIN number to access this service once the NHS has processed your registration with us.
Overall we are offering more appointments than ever before!
Please try out webGP before you book your next appointment if possible!
