University and College Students - IF YOU ARE ILL

During the time you spend at college or university you may experience an episode of illness. This may impact on your ability to attend lectures, exams, tutorials or completing some of your course work. We are only able to help with significant illness. Short duration/self-limiting conditions such as colds, flu, headaches, diarrhoea and vomiting do not usually need a doctors letter.

If you are unwell and your tutor asks for proof in the form of certification, you should which can be collected from reception, or downloaded here.

If your tutor requires further confirmation of your difficulties, he or she and you need to complete a Request for Evidence (Sickness Form Part B). This should be delivered to the person you have seen regarding your difficulties e.g. student counsellor, nurse or doctor, and will be done only at the doctors discretion.

please note: Sick lines for work (known as form Med 3) are only applicable for illness preventing employment and Statutory sick pay purposes, and are not to cover illness in students. There is usually a fee for providing written evidence of illness from your doctor, which can be provided by reception staff.  

Complete a Notification of Illness Form to give to your tutor so your tutor is aware of your difficulties.

Scottish Bowel Cancer Screening

 

All men and women aged 50–74 are invited for bowel screening. Bowel screening involves taking a simple test at home every two years.

Although bowel cancer is common, it is also highly treatable if detected early.. If we find bowel cancer early enough, there’s more than a 90% chance of successful treatment. The sooner it’s caught, the easier it is to treat.

From April 2013, if you’re 75 or over you can still take a bowel screening test every two years if you want to. We won’t automatically send you a test kit every two years though, so you’ll need to ask us for one.

It’s still free – just call the Bowel Screening Centre Helpline on 0800 0121 833.


Extended opening hours.

We offer extended opening hours. These appointments are provided to help those that may find visiting the doctor about routine medical issues difficult during our normal opening hours. Please speak to our reception team to find out about availability.

Please be aware that they are pre-booked appointments only, and there may not be access to nursing services (such as blood taking ECGs etc) at the same time. You may need to book a separate appointment to arrange such investigations.

 


 

Get yourself fit without the expense of gyms 

 

Doing at least 30 minutes a day of moderate-intensity activity, at least three to five times a week, will boost your general health.

 

This level of activity is enough to reduce your risk of developing major chronic diseases, such as coronary heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and even early death. Exercise will also enhance your overall wellbeing.
