Please note: Our Student Medical Centre will remain closed until 18 February, this is due to staff assisting with Covid vaccinations at the main Talbot Medical Centre.

Out of hours and during vacations
Outside of the Student Medical Centre opening hours you can visit the Talbot Medical Centre in Wallisdown or Northbourne Surgery near Kinson. View map for details. Please call on 01202 636400.
For emergency contraception please contact The Junction on 0300 3031948.
You can call 111 when you need medical help urgently, but it's not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.
NHS 111 can also be accessed online.
Some patients are not aware that they can get treatment from a GP 24 hours a day, often going to the emergency departments (ED) at hospitals during the 'out-of-hours' period instead. This not only causes pressure on the ED but can mean a lengthy wait for patients with non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries whilst urgent cases are prioritised.
