Welcome to Nottingham Trent University
Registering with a doctor may not be a priority when moving to university. However it is important to register with a practice in Nottingham. This is due to a multitude of reason such as:
- if you are ill and need to see a doctor urgently
- to manage your ongoing care if you have a long term condition such as asthma
- to issue repeat prescriptions for medication
General practitioners are the first point of contact for NHS patients. To be able to register you must:
- Be registered for a minimum of six months tuition on a university course
- Be resident within the area covered by the Health Centre
You can register by completing our Registration form and health questionnaire then handing them into our reception.
NTU Health Protection for Freshers
Students can be more vulnerable to meningitis because of living in close living arrangements. In many cases, young people come together from all over the world to live in one place and can sometimes be exposed to bacteria and viruses their bodies have not met before. This is why so many new students get ‘freshers' flu’.
