Registration for Student Health
at Sheffield Hallam University

Student Health at SHU
It's very important that you register with a GP practice in Sheffield if you're
coming to live and study here. Once registered at a GP practice they can:
  • Get hold of your medical history as soon as possible
  • Send information to you on relevant health issues
  • Pick up on any ongoing medical problems
  • Sort out any prescriptions you need to request
But most importantly, it will be the place you know to go
when you are ill, and the place they know about you!

If you're moving to Sheffield, we advice you to register with our medical centre. If you're staying at home and commuting into the university you can choose to register with us or stay with your own GP surgery. For convenience we do provide flexible appointments to fit around your studies.

This registration form should only be used by Sheffield Hallam University Students.

* Summary Care Records
Summary Care Record (SCR) - this is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take,
allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had. Having this information stored in one place
makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.
  
 
* Important Information
It is practice policy to share information that is recorded on your clinical record with other clinical staff that you are under
the care of to ensure the best care is provided to you. For further information please ask for an information leaflet
or visit www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk/carerecords.
Your record will be automatically setup to be shared with the other Health Care organisations. These organisations
will only be able to view your shared record if they are actually providing you with care. However, you have the right
to ask your GP to disable this function or restrict access to specific elements of your record.  This will mean that
the information recorded by your GP will not be visible at any other care setting
Do you consent for us to share your medical records with other medical service
you may be using i.e. District Nurse Teams, Podiatry or Dieticians?
