We are the college doctors for 12 Oxford University Colleges*. If you are studying at one of these colleges we strongly encourage you to register with us as an NHS patient. If you are a member of one of these colleges and are not already registered you can register online here

The NHS services we provide are confidential, but if necessary, and with student consent, we can help our student patients liaise with their colleges and the university if health problems are affecting academic studies, or if adjustments need to be made due to health reasons. This includes providing university medical certificates and other supporting documentation if required by the university.

If you are a student and have been advised by your college or department to obtain a formal university medical certificate please complete the form below. Please be aware that we may need to contact you to discuss your certificate, especially if you have not recently seen us for the medical condition involved. Certificates will be sent directly to your college, please allow 5 working days for this. If a certificate is required more urgently please ask your college to liaise directly wtih us once you have returned your form to us.


All the colleges provide health and welfare support to their students and we encourage you to access these college based services. Information about the wider university health and wellbeing services can be found here. Many colleges have college nurses available on site – more details and surgery times available from individual colleges.
