Information for Students
If you need regular medication for any condition, let us know when you register. We can provide the repeat prescriptions when you need them but 48 hours notice is required for all repeat prescriptions. Talk to reception if there is a problem.
Important: We need to know if you are already on a hospital waiting list.
Home & Away
If you change your term-time address please let us know.
If you need medical attention while you are away from Aber (for example, at home during the holidays), register with a doctor there as a Temporary Resident. Then your medical records will stay safely here with us.
When you have registered with us, your medical card will be sent to you within about a month.
Please see a Doctor first.
We only give prescriptions for the pill (oral contraception) after a check-up by a Doctor. You can make a routine appointment, or come to our drop in contraception clinic which is held every Monday at 17.00 unless stated otherwise.
Emergency contraception This is effective if taken within 72hr. If you need the morning-after pill ask for an urgent appointment. There are also Family Planning Clinics at North Road clinic in Aberystwyth for contraception and pregnancy tests each Wednesday from 5.30.
