Essential Health Information


We strongly advise all students to register with a local doctor (GP) or Medical Practice while they are at Liverpool Hope. Students can register with the GP on campus during the first week of term, but if you miss this opportunity, please do not leave it until you are ill to try to register, as getting an appointment at busy times can prove difficult. Please call in to see Student Development & Well-being on the first floor of the Gateway Building to collect registration forms.

Details of other local GPs are available from Student Development and Well-being or by searching on the NHS website under Services Near You.

Ensuring you are up to date with your Covid vaccinations

Everyone in the UK aged 5 and over can still get a 1st and 2nd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

People aged 16 and over, can also get a booster dose no earlier than 3 months after their previous dose.

If you have not received 3 doses of the Covid vaccine you can still catch up now.

How to get a Covid vaccine

You can book an appointment at a Liverpool vaccine centre or attend a Liverpool walk-in clinic even if you are registered with a GP in another area of England

  • book your COVID-19 vaccination appointment online for an appointment at a vaccination centre or pharmacy
  • find a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination site to get vaccinated without needing an appointment. If you have not yet registered with a GP in England, you can still attend a walk-in clinic

If you cannot book an appointment online, you can call 119 free of charge. You can speak to a translator if you need to.

If you have difficulties communicating or hearing, or are a British Sign Language (BSL) user, you can use textphone 18001 119 or the NHS 119 BSL interpreter service.

Registering vaccines obtained overseas

If you’ve had one or more doses of the following Covid vaccines outside of England, you can book an appointment to have the vaccines validated and added to your NHS record.

  • Oxford/AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria)
  • Pfizer/BioNTech (Comirnaty)
  • Johnson & Johnson (Janssen)
  • Moderna (Spikevax)
  • Institute of India (Covishield)

Autumn Boosters

Later this year, the NHS in England will be offering people more at risk from Covid a further vaccine, known as the ‘autumn booster’. This will include anyone aged 50 and over plus anyone aged 16 to 49 who is clinically at risk due to having a long-term condition such as Diabetes, severe Asthma or a heart condition.

If you are in one of these groups, you will be invited for your autumn booster when it is your turn.
