    I have accepted an offer from westminster as my first choice. I didn't really think it through. It's not that i don't want to go. I have a rare disability, which requires me to see a specialist. I'm also on some medication which works great and is the only reason i'm able t study. The problem is, this medication isn't just given too people. The NHS don't fund it because of the expense unless you don't respond too other treatment (which i didn't). There's a whole application process, which goes through the healthcare commision of my district? This got me thinking. I live in derbyshire and if i move to London then will i have to go through the application process again? Is it easy to switch hospitals and specialist?

    I think you should ask your hospital and look into all this stuff before arriving as there is still 4/5 months till you start I would gather information from your doctor and go from there x

    Hello

    I have spoken with the Student Health team here at Westminster and they have said it's difficult to advise you on your situation without knowing more about you and your condition, what medication you are on and who is responsible for approving and prescribing it. They have suggested you contact them directly as soon as possible so they can try to help you and find out the answers. Their email is [email protected]

    Best wishes
