To make an appointment please ring 01248 364492 and inform the receptionist that you are a university student and that you would like an appointment. For the best possible care for all our patients we aim to see all patients who request an appointment within 24 hours. To help us achieve this we have pre-bookable doctor appointments up to 2 weeks in advance. For all other routine appointments we ask that you ring on the day that you need to be seen. Alternatively come to the reception desk at Bodnant to make an appointment.
You will usually be fitted into the student health session. These are held twice daily.

If you feel that your problem is more serious and this includes depression please request a doctor appointment.
Please always state if your problem is URGENT and you will be seen as soon as possible.
