Medical Support

The College Doctors

The College requires all its students to register with an Oxford GP during their time at Univ to ensure that medical care is available in Oxford should it be required.

We strongly encourage students to register with the 19 Beaumont Street Practice, whose doctors and other staff are familiar with the needs of students at Oxford.

The Practice is open Monday to Friday, 8.00am-6.00pm, and the telephone number there is 01865 240501. It is about a 10 minute walk from Univ.

Information on how to register is available here (PDF opens in new window.)

Further information about the practice is on its website: 19 Beaumont St Surgery and in its practice leaflet available here (PDF opens in new window.) The website also includes links to a range of sources of advice and support on physical, mental and emotional health well-being.

Please note that there is an immigration health charge for access to NHS treatment for non-EU students studying in the UK on Tier-4 visas. Information about this charge can be found at ox.ac.uk.

The College Nurse

The College Nurse is Glenys Knighton, and her surgery is on the ground floor of Kybald House. She may be reached by email (university.nurse@nhs.net) or by phone (01865276605, or 76605 if calling from the college and university internal telephone network).

Students are welcome to see her during surgery hours, or can ask her to come to see them in their room in College if they cannot come to the surgery.

Surgery hours (weeks 1-8) are usually as follows:

Monday, 1300-1600
Wednesday, 0830-1230
Friday, 1300-1600

Dental Services

Information regarding dental services for students can be found on the University’s website here.

First Aid and Emergency Medical Care

The College has first-aiders on duty at all times. Please contact the Lodge if you need first aid or other immediate assistance.

Anyone needing urgent medical or dental help may also ring 111 at any time. This is the NHS non-emergency number.

In an emergency (when someone is seriously injured and their life may be at risk) the number to call is 999.  It is helpful to alert the Lodge if the emergency services are called so that a Porter or other member of staff can be on hand to assist.
