Whether you are feeling ill, want family planning advice, concerned about your sexual health, or need information on vaccinations for your trip abroad, the staff at the University Medical Centre are able to provide you with a caring and confidential service on these and a wide range of medical matters.

We strongly recommend that you register with a doctor on your arrival in Preston and your NHS medical card would be helpful for this but not essential. If you register at the University Medical Centre you will be asked to complete a short health questionnaire to assist the Doctors and Nurses with your care. (Print now, complete the details and bring it with you.)

Health items

Consultation with the Doctor is by appointment only and while we will endeavour to give you an appointment with the doctor of your choice, this may not always be possible and your patience and co-operation is appreciated. If you need to cancel an appointment, for any reason, please advise us at the earliest opportunity.

The practice offers an ‘advanced access’ model for appointments. This should mean that you can get an appointment on the same day if you ring before 9.30am. We also have a small number of pre-bookable appointments The nurse practitioners’ offer a daily drop-in service and can treat a wide range of conditions.

We offer appointments for vaccinations and travel health advice/treatment, by appointment and are a registered yellow fever centre.

There is a blood clinic once weekly:  please ring for times.  Dressings/ecgs/ear syringing are by appointment only.

When you book an appointment it is helpful to ask for the Doctor, Nurse practitioner, Family Planning/Sexual Health Nurse or Treatment Room Nurse, repeat prescriptions may also be requested, when appropriate, to save you time (24 hours notice required please).
