Information for students
As a student, you may be living far away from your home address. It is therefore vital that you register with a local GP.
The Student Medical Centre is ideal as it is based on Talbot Campus. If you would like to register with us then please complete the registration form and the new patient questionnaire and then bring it to the Student Medical Centre along with your Student ID Card.
You’ll also need to provide a letter confirming that you're a BU student; you can self-print a standard status letter to confirm this via myHub – under ‘My Documents’.
Please note: the Student Medical Centre is currently closed due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation - please see above details if you need medical advice.
You can book appointments either by phone (01202 965378), visiting the Student Medical Centre (Talbot House, Talbot Campus), or online using SystmOnline.
To book appointments online you’ll need to register for SystmOnline, this is available 24 hours a day for you to view, book and cancel appointments.
To register for this service, you'll need to collect your login details in person from the Student Medical Centre, this is a national NHS GP surgery process, but once you have them you can manage everything online.
For more information, download the SystmOnline leaflet.
