Further Medical Advice
For professional medical advice, you can call NHS Direct on 0845 46 47 (calls are charged at local rates, which usually vary from mobile phones).
Cost Of Health Care To Students
Frustratingly, students are not automatically eligible for free medicines and prescriptions and things such as glasses, through the NHS, but you may be able to claim the money you pay for these back using a HC1 form (which you can apply for online), or pick up from the Durham Students’ Union.
If you are struggling with your studies, you can contact your college tutor, academic tutor, or you can contact the DSU via email (email@example.com), or drop in to the Student Union building – the advice centre is on the top floor.
If you are struggling with money whilst studying at university, and can’t save money however hard you try, try skint.dsu.org.uk, the DSU’s website aimed to help students at Durham University in financial difficulty. There may also be money available to help you in the form of bursaries from the university – ask your college’s finance officer for more details.
