Student Health Centre
York St John has a health centre on campus which is part of York Medical Group. Doctors' surgeries are held regularly and a practice nurse holds a daily clinic on a range of services.
Registering with the Student Health Centre
If you have not already done so, please register at Quad East for all of your medical needs and advice. The services we provide are tailored specifically to students.
You can register with the Student Health Centre before you arrive at University. You can register by going to the Health Centre (Quad East, Lord Mayor's Walk) and picking up a registration pack from our surgery. You can also register with us online:
Please don't wait until you are unwell to register. We need time to get your details from your existing GP and you will not be able to book an appointment if you are not registered.
If you choose to register you can still visit your normal doctor at your home address but you may have to be registered as a temporary resident. Visit the Student Health Centre website to find out more.
Contacting the Student Health Centre
You can call the health centre on the following numbers:
Campus surgery (Quad East, Lord Mayors Walk): 01904 439 101
Monkgate surgery: 01904 439 100
For urgent advice and treatment when the Student Health Centre is closed, phone the surgery on the usual number and an answer phone message will advise you of an alternative number to dial.
A receptionist in the emergency call centre will answer your call. They will either:
- Arrange for you to speak to a doctor or nurse
- Invite you to attend the centre to be seen by the doctor
- Arrange a home visit if you are too ill to visit the centre
For routine calls it is often a good idea to try and avoid the busiest times (early morning and late evening). In an emergency, ring the Student Health Centre and tell the receptionist the problem. It may be appropriate to take the patient straight to the nearest A&E department at York Hospital.
