Primary medical care

Information about student health services are given in the University of Manchester Undergraduate Crucial Guide.

Primary medical care

Primary medical care of students is provided by the National Health Service through individual registration by students with a local general practice (doctors) of their choice. A list of all general practices (doctors surgeries) can be obtained from the NHS website.

Very important

Please check with the local practice/health centre that you have chosen that they are prepared to issue medical notes to students for medical conditions which may affect their studies, for consideration at Board of Examiners. Please do not register with a practice or health centre which refuses to provide this service as the Board of Examiners cannot consider medical circumstances without proof of the condition. Some local practices and health centres now charge a fee for these medical notes so please also check whether this is the case so you can take this into consideration before you decide to register with them.
