Being ill away from home can be a difficult and lonely experience. Here at Concord we do our best to ensure that students are well cared for and that illness and pre-existing medical conditions are professionally handled.
The College has a purpose-built medical centre in the heart of the Concord campus which is staffed by qualified nurses and is open on weekdays and weekends from 08:30 to 22:00. Students can also see a GP (doctor) locally if necessary.
There is no charge for students being seen by the College nurse or by a local GP . There is usually no charge for emergency treatment in National Health Service hospitals, however, there may be a charge for follow up or secondary treatment for students from some countries. Students from EU countries should carry a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). We strongly recommend medical/travel insurance is arranged in the country of residence to cover non-emergency treatment or repatriation (for instance by air ambulance).
Students are not permitted to store medication in their rooms. Any medication that is brought into the College will be held by Concord staff: it will be recorded and administered to students as prescribed or required.
