GPs and Dentists

 

Registering With a GP Practice

We strongly advise all students to register with a local doctor (GP) or Medical Practice while they are at Liverpool Hope. Students can register with the GP on campus during the first week of term, but if you miss this opportunity, please do not leave it until you are ill to try to register, as getting an appointment at busy times can prove difficult. Please call in to see Student Development & Well-being on the first floor of the Gateway Building to collect registration forms. 

Students are welcome to ask for advice should they wish to find a doctor with particular specialisms, who speaks the student’s birth language, who is sensitive to cultural norms or who is closer to where they are living if not in Halls of Residence. 

Details of other local GPs are available from Student Development and Well-being or by searching on the NHS website under ‘Services Near You'.

 

In case of emergency

Call Security on 3520 (Hope Park) or 3700 (Creative Campus) who will alert the Emergency Services.

For none urgent medical queries or out of hours service, contact NHS 111 (free from any phone).

 

Walk in Centres

For more information on finding your nearest walk in centre, please visit the NHS website.

 

Dentists

We recommend that students make regular appointments with a dentist because treatments required to save teeth affected by pain are often lengthy and more expensive than more conventional treatments. If treatment is delayed the dentist may not be able to save the tooth. Having regular check-ups ensures your teeth and gums are as healthy as possible, and help to minimise the need for treatment.

To find out more about which dentists are treating NHS patients call 0800 073 1106. Details about dentists close to where you are living along with their opening times can be found on www.nhs.uk.
