The University Medical Centre (UMC) has been providing primary care services to university students for many years. Plymouth University students have access to a dedicated, purpose-built GP surgery on campus. Students can see their doctor in a modern and well-designed building, right on campus, run by Peverell Park Surgery. Any student studying at Plymouth University and living in Plymouth postcodes PL1 – PL6 will be welcome to register with our surgery.

We require your previous medical records before prescribing regular medication. Therefore please ensure you have a month’s supply of regular medication from your previous surgery before registering.
