Information is released to a third party only with the consent of the student. You will need to bring your student I.D card with you when attending the Health Centre.

 

Health Questionnaires

All first year students receive a Health Questionnaire, if for any reason you have not, these can be obtained from the Health Centre. All other years are invited to attend the nurse, in the event your health status has changed since completing the Questionnaire.

If there are any particular medical conditions/disabilities that may impact on your academic performance, it is important that you inform the nurse or Disability Officer and they can be addressed accordingly, with your permission (see end of questionnaire).
