If you have moved to Liverpool for your studies, make sure you register with a local GP.
Your GP is usually your first port of call if you are unwell or need medical support, so it’s important to make sure you register before you might need to visit a doctor. It is particularly important if you have a health condition such as asthma or diabetes, or require medication; but will also give you access to out of hours help if you become unwell.
Your new doctor will be able to liaise with your usual hospital consultant if necessary, and you can continue to visit your home GP on a temporary basis during the holiday periods.
If you live at any of the Halls of Residence or close to the University campus (postcodes L1, L2, L3, L6, L7, L8, L15, L17, L18), then you will be within the practice boundary for Brownlow Health which operates Student Health Services.
Brownlow Health has three surgery sites at 70 Pembroke Place (L69 3GF) and Peach Street (L69 7ZL) on the University campus, as well as Argyle Street (L1 5DL) in the Ropewalks areas of the city.
All new patients will be offered the opportunity to use Brownlow’s online services which will enable you to make and cancel appointments, receive test results, update your contact details, and order repeat prescriptions online. Brownlow Health also offers extended access via email and telephone appointments.
You can register easily online via the Brownlow Health website or contact the practice via telephone on 0151 285 4578.
University of Liverpool students registered with Brownlow Health can also make use of the new NHS App.
The first official NHS App, which is currently in the final stages of testing, will enable all patients to access a range of healthcare services on their smartphone or tablet when it launches across the country in 2019.
Brownlow is one of 30 GP practices across the country which has been selected to test the app, and patients who are registered at those practices are able to access the technology early as part of a trial period.
The app allows patients to:

Our @LivUniSWAG team work with our international student community to offer help & support throughout their time at Liverpool. The intention was not to single out any particular group of students, but to make the information as accessible as possible for our student community.
