• If you feel you need to attend Student Health please phone us first and give a brief outline of your problem. This information helps us provide the most suitable care. This may mean phone advice, seeing a health professional or having prescribed medication, observation and rest at Student Health for several hours.
• If you live in a Residential College it is very important that you let your RA /Warden know you are unwell. The College can then care for you and also take measures to reduce the spread of infection (eg providing you with meals in your room).
• Please do not attend classes, lectures, labs until your symptoms have settled. Please do not put others at risk of picking up any infections.
The 2014 influenza vaccination is still available.
