I read someone on the internet that you need your NHS medical card to get a new doctor at uni and that you need to have mumps and measles innoculations before you go?

Is this true? :confused:

I didn't register with a doctor at uni.
don't really see the point in it, it's not like I'd ever have gone to see him/her - I haven't been to my doctor at home in over 5 years

I remember mu uni sent me a form to fill out if I wanted to register at the local docs. I remember it was like name etc, nhs number and a medical health questionnaire. I think this meant I didnt need to take a card with me to uni but I can't remember. I remember on the day we did all the boring registration stuff with the uni I had to get measured and weighed. I wasn't bothered by my weight so much more the fact I had to remove my shoes and they didn't smell very nice!

my uni has a sick bay for if people get ill, have to pay £10 a year for it but it'll be worth it as I get flu in november/december time every year now it sucks

Most unis will give you information about a GP, although my advice is once you have left campus to get another one as the Uni GPs are usually a bit rubbish. I strongly advise you to get all your jabs - it is not fun having mumps or measles at the start of your first year, it is even less fun having meningitis.

my uni told me i had to have my mmr before i registered with them...if i didn't they give you one when you register with your uni doctor. i'd get it done now because uni nurses are always in a rush and won't care if they hurt you!

why bother registering?

I cant save you all about 2hours waiting time of breathing in the air of sick people.
IF you're ill take lots of rest, have some painkillers and keep up your intake of fluids.

anything worse is for hospital
