Where to find Health Help


Where to find Health Help

By hughero 30 Aug 2018

At the University of Liverpool we always suggest that students sign up to a doctor as soon as they start with us. 

However, we are aware that it doesn't always happen. That is why we have put together our useful guide to help you find local health centres around the city, for when you need to see a doctor in a hurry or haven't had the chance to sign up. 

Liverpool City Centre NHS Walk-in Centre

For most Campus students, the Liverpool City Centre Walk In will be the most convenient way to seek help with your health related issue. 

Liverpool City Centre Walk-in provides consultations, advice and treatment for minor injuries and illnesses, examples include: minor infections and rashes, stomach upsets, superficial cuts and bruises, strains and sprains, coughs, colds and flu-like symptoms. Also provided is emergency contraception and advice and Chlamydia screening for under 25s.

The service is self referral, no appointment is necessary.

Old Swan NHS Walk-in Centre

Situated in the Old Swan district of Liverpool with a nurse-led service, this walk in centre is open 7 days a week including bank holidays 7.00am to 10.00pm.

NHS 111

NHS 111 is much more than a helpline – if you're worried about an urgent medical concern, you can call 111 to speak to a fully trained adviser. For less urgent health needs, contact your GP or local pharmacist.

Depending on the situation, the NHS 111 team can connect you to a nurse, emergency dentist or even a GP, and can arrange face-to-face appointments if they think you need one.

You can also access NHS 111 online here. 

For more serious injuries our campus and student village students are also close to the Royal Hospital. Please only use the A&E service in the event of an emergency.

Royal Liverpool University Hospital (A&E)
Prescot Street,
