About our doctors

Here at the University Health Service you are welcome to see any doctor or to see the doctor of your choice when they are next free. However, it is often helpful to try to see the same doctor about an ongoing problem as this helps maintain the continuity of your care.

We offer doctors who can consult in a range of languages, including English, French, Arabic, Urdu, Punjabi & Hindi.
