When you move to Colchester to study at the University of Essex it is important that you register at the University health centre on campus so that you can obtain healthcare locally. We have an online registration form which is available through the University of Essex Medical Practice website. Before you arrive please ensure that you are up-to-date with meningitis ACWY and MMR vaccinations.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are minimising direct patient contact in the surgery and are operating a remote consultation policy. Please contact the surgery by telephone or online and your enquiry will be directed to the most appropriate member of staff. Consultations with the doctors and nursing team will be by telephone or video link. If a face-to-face appointment is considered to be clinically necessary then arrangements will be made for you to come into the surgery to be seen. When in the surgery you will need to wear a face covering and your clinician will wear PPE in line with current guidelines and direct contact time will be kept to a minimum. Please do not visit the health centre unless you have been given permission to do so.
