Looking after your physical health is fundamental to student success.
Your Wellbeing Team provides a range of support in relation to all your physical health needs. It is very important to ensure you can access the support you need when you need it. We encourage all students to register with a doctor upon arrival. You should only register with a doctor (GP) in Sunderland once you are living in Sunderland. If you have yet to move, live at home, or live elsewhere we recommend registering with your closest GP.
You can find your nearest GP by using this NHS GP Finder.
If you are an International Student please also visit our page about Health Information for International Students.
We work alongside the Disability Support Team for all students with a diagnosed physical condition. The Disability Support Team (DST) provides information, support, and guidance to students with disabilities, mental health difficulties, Specific Learning Difficulties (such as dyslexia), and long-term medical conditions. Their area of expertise is learning support; if you feel that your condition or impairment is having an impact upon your studies, you can contact them:
Call 999 in a medical emergency. This is when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk.
