University of Brighton Doctor

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.

Why register with a doctor?

If you are not registered with a local doctor, you will have more difficulty getting an appointment.

Register now so you can access:

  • 24-hour emergency cover or home visits
  • 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
  • health promotion and screening services
  • advice and up to date information regarding infectious diseases, e.g. meningitis.

Where to register

The university has two on-site surgeries, one in Eastbourne and one in Moulsecoomb.

However, for most students we recommend you register with a GP surgery near where you live.
