If you would like to register with Penryn Surgery please complete BOTH the new patient registration form and student health questionnaire below.
Your home address on the form is your university address, including any room, flat, block, street, town and postcode.
Your previous address is where you will be coming from.
We are unable to register you with only part addresses so if you do not have your full university accommodation address yet do not try to register until you have it.
If you have your NHS Number please add it to the form - it makes tracing your medical records much easier
You can find your NHS Number HERE
Taking Regular Medication? Asthma Inhalers? The Contraceptive Pill? Insulin?
If you are coming to uni for the first time, re-registering or have been prescribed new medication while on a break from uni, you will need to tell Penryn Surgery so we can keep prescribing it for you.
Once you have received confirmation that you have been registered you will be sent a link to send us a photo of your repeat prescription counterfoil or a photo of your new medication package. We will need to see the name, strength and dose. Our clinical pharmacist will set this up as a repeat prescription so you can order on-line when you need it next. Please make sure you bring a month's supply with you so you don't run out.
If you don't tell the clinical pharmacist which medication you take in advance, you won't be able to re-order it on-line when you get low!
If you nominated a pharmacy out of area while away- remember to nominate a local one BEFORE you place your order. You can do this online via Airmid or the NHS App.
Moving to study at university, living away from home and juggling uni work can be stressful and impact your mental health. It's important to look after yourself by exercising regularly, minimising alcohol and avoiding recreational drugs, eating well and spending time with friends.
If you are struggling there is help and support available to you. You can access a variety of services for free and without a GP referral, click here for more information. You could also consider seeking support from the University Student Welfare team, or speaking to a GP at the surgery by making an appointment.
