The Medical Centre on campus offers a large variety of services to students and members of the public.
Make sure you register when you arrive, and get up to date with your vaccinations.
The Medical Centre is located on campus, adjacent to Saltash Hall of Residence.
There is pedestrian and wheelchair access from the front of the building. Car parking is for outside visitors only (see the car parking information page for information on campus parking regulations for Brunel students).
Since November 2008, in line with NHS policy, the practice additionally offers GP appointments on two evenings per week Tuesday and Thursdays until 7:45 pm and on Thursday and Friday mornings from 7:15 to 8:00 am. Please note that no other business can be addressed during these extended hours - they are for GP appointments only.
We are having a trial period during the summer holidays: from 1 July 2011 until 9 September 2011, the Medical Centre will be closing at 2:00 pm Friday afternoons.
If you need a doctor in an emergency please ring NHS Direct 0845 46 47.
Please note that the Medical Centre and its staff are not linked to the Brunel mainstream computer system, and as such do not have Brunel email addresses.
