Students with a Belfast address, even if they only live there during the week, are strongly encouraged to register with a General Practice (GP) surgery close to the University- although it must be within a 10 mile radius of your address. If you are ill and need a doctor’s note relating to your studies, you must see a GP as soon as possible. It is also very important to be registered with a local GP surgery if you are suddenly and unexpectedly ill and require GP (non-emergency) attention. Students from within the United Kingdom can switch back to their ‘home’ GP during the summer break.
The University Health Centre (UHC) at Queen’s offers student-focused NHS services and University funded non-NHS services for Queen’s students. The UHC has extensive experience in the health needs of young adults and are a friendly team who understand University life. International students resident in the UK for six months or more on a student visa are entitled to free NHS care and can also register with the practice. Visit our website or phone the Health Centre for more information on how to register.
