The University of Cambridge does not have its own medical practice, and all students are advised to register with a local GP (general practitioner) when they arrive. Your college should be able to provide a list of local practices, or you could use the NHS Direct search facility.
The University has its own Dental Service that can provide NHS treatment to students. It also offers emergency after-hours treatment.
Every year the University issues Health Guidelines to staff and students. These include information on meningitis, vaccinations, anaphylaxes and sexual health. In the event of an epidemic or pandemic it may also release information on the advice on the Health Protection Agency.
For some courses, students may be required to undergo health screening from the University's Occupational Health Service. You will be advised by your college if this is a requirement of your course.
Health & Safety
The University's Health and Safety Office also has a broad range of guidance documents that you may need to refer to during your time at Cambridge, for example cycle safety and security.
