Free student health review

Regular health reviews can be a quick, simple way to get a snapshot of how healthy you are and to learn about ways to improve your health.

University life can be a lot of fun but it can also be hard work, so it’s important that you look after your physical and mental health so you can make the most of your time.

Book a free health review
