Meningitis ACWY Vaccination for Freshers
Students aged between 17-24yrs and starting university are strongly recommended to have a booster Men ACWY vaccination (which has replaced the Meningitis C) if you didn’t receive one in school. This is because it is now known that your immunity to the disease will have decreased and your risk of catching the disease is higher.
If you do require a vaccination, it is very important for you to try to have this done at your home GP before you come to the University. However, if unable to do so, register with us by filling in the above Registration Forms and contact us ideally by freshers week to book an appointment.

Please note, if you did not have the booster vaccine offered to you last year or you do not fit the criteria i.e. you are not a first year student or are outside of the age range, you are not eligible for the vaccine and we can not offer for you to have this done privately.
Summary Care Record
The NHS in England is introducing the Summary Care Record, which will be used in emergency care. Please read the Summary Care Record letter below and the SCR explanation for more information. As a new patient you have a choice to either have a Summary Care Record or not.
If you choose to have a Summary Care Record, you just need to tick the box on the Medical Centre registration form under the Summary Care Record section and a Summary Care Record will be created for you. Otherwise, tick the box to opt out and we will record this accordingly.
