It is important to register with a doctor in case you need access to support. The College has an arrangement with the doctors at the 19 Beaumont Street Surgery to provide medical cover for our students. We suggest that you look at their website (address above) and refer to the information below about registering with the surgery. You are advised to register with the practice as soon as possible so that, should you become ill, you know that you are able to attend this practice and so that you do not lose out on access to services and medication.

  • All full-time and part-time students who will be living in Oxford are advised to register with the practice as soon as possible, ideally before arrival in Oxford and certainly within the first two weeks of Michaelmas term.
  • If you are a part-time student and will not be living in Oxford we suggest that you remain registered with your local doctor.
  • If you are studying in the UK for less than six months then you can access healthcare privately (charges apply) at 19 Beaumont Street. You would not be entitled to routine NHS healthcare unless it is a medical emergency that cannot wait until you return home.

Registration is most easily completed online at where you click on the link for Kellogg College. You should allow some time to answer the questions and the practice advises that you may wish to obtain a printout summary of your computer records (or access them online) from your current medical practice to assist in answering the questions such as about vaccinations.

It is particularly important for international students to register as soon as possible as your eligibility for free non-GP services is dependent on how long you have been registered with the NHS rather than how long you have been in the country.

Patients registered with the 19 Beaumont Street Surgery are registered with the practice as a whole and not with a specific doctor. If you need to see someone you can telephone and make an appointment with any of the doctors there. You can choose a male or female doctor, but bear in mind that doctors do get quite booked up, so you might have to wait to be seen, unless it is an urgent matter. If you wish to see a nurse, you can telephone for an appointment in the treatment room, but again, this can get very booked up, so you will be unlikely to get an appointment on the day unless it is urgent. You should not attend the surgery if you are concerned that you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. If you think you have coronavirus symptoms or have been in contact with anyone who has, first consult for NHS 111 advice.

Medical paperwork/certificates/prescriptions

If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, please bring as much information as possible with you to Oxford, so that appropriate care and management of any conditions can be put in place. It will greatly help medical staff at the surgery if you can provide details of medical conditions and any medicines that you are taking.

If any pre-existing medical conditions or new medical conditions affect your studies, or mean that you may require additional study support or alternative examination arrangements, do discuss these with the Academic Register in good time, and certainly ahead of any timetabled examinations. Doctors’ certificates will be required if you apply for an extension, for some alternative exam arrangements, and other applications based on medical grounds.
