University of Brighton Doctor

We recommend that you register with a university doctor or local doctor as soon as possible when you arrive at university.

If you are not registered with a local doctor, you will have difficulty getting an appointment, and crucial time could be wasted in an emergency.

  • routine appointments for ongoing medical problems or acute illness
  • repeat prescriptions
  • doctor’s certificates or notes required by your university course
  • contraceptive services and advice
  • holiday vaccinations and health advice
  • medicals – diving, employment, Camp America etc
