I guess I'll wait then, that sounds easiest tbh
Yeah, it shouldn't be a problem unless you needed a repeat prescription or something immediately after arriving (as they need time register you and get your notes). And even if your not registered they would be obliged to see you in an emergency, so no rush really.
I posted this in the other thread but the post is a few pages back by now.
Information regarding the "University Medical Centre Registration Form":
The top of the form states "UK students - Please complete both sides of this form and return in the envelope marked Medical Officer (Only if you have a Loughborough address)". As new students you obviously won't know your Loughborough address yet. What you should do is either:
1. Fill in the form other than the Loughborough address, don't post the form, complete the address part when you get to Loughborough and know your halls address (including flat number), and take the form into the medical centre later.
2. Fill in the form other than the Loughborough address and post it like that. The medical centre will follow it up later when they check their records, or if you go there for an appointment.
That info comes from the medical centre themselves, I phoned to check it
