Student responsibilities Student Health


As a student you are responsible for looking after your own health and wellbeing. It is essential that you register with a local GP as soon as you arrive in Liverpool – this will give you access to the local health resources. It is not advisable or appropriate to wait until you are ill. Registering with a local doctor is very important and nobody else will do it for you. You can find a GP in your area by logging on to www.nhsdirect.co.uk or by ringing 0845 46 47, or by viewing the Student Medical Services website.

As well as providing care while you are unwell, staff at the Iain Newman Medical Centre can provide advice on all aspects of healthy living; sexual health and contraception; travel health and vaccinations; management of diabetes, asthma, hay-fever and anxiety issues.

Occupational Health Unit: The Occupational Health Unit’s primary role is to look at how the working environment affects its staff, and how their health affects their ability to carry out their work. However, many LJMU students will have some contact with the Occupational Health Unit. The Unit carries out medical assessments for certain student groups, such as student nurses and other health care students, student teachers and biomolecular studies students. The team will also see certain students referred by their School and/or Tutor.
