On arrival to UNS please come in and take a seat in the waiting room, the nurse will know you are there and will call you when he or she is free. The front door is unlocked between 7.00 an & 7.00 pm. If you arrive before midnight and the door is locked please use the intercom to alert the nurse to your arrival, if you arrive after midnight please call Campus Watch on 01227 823300.
Waiting times can vary, we strive to see all patients as quickly as possible, but during busy periods and when we have in-patients your wait might be longer. During these times the nurse will endeavour to keep you informed of the waiting time.
UNS has two patient bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms where students may stay if the nurse or doctor feels it is appropriate. If you are going to stay in UNS please bring clothing and toiletries and any essentials that might make your stay more comfortable.
Earlier in 2015 we ran a survey to gather patients opinions of the service we offer at The University Nursing Services. Please click on the link below to view the overall outcome.
