All Newnham students (including those from the EU and Overseas) can register with the NHS surgery at Newnham Walk, a minute’s walk away from the college.

Our College Nurse and College Counsellor are based in the College Health Centre, where they hold regular individual and group sessions.

Students who attend an induction appointment with the College Nurse at the start of Michaelmas term will automatically be registered to Newnham Walk GP surgery.

Our College Nurse holds regular surgeries and can offer medical advice. She is available to help with a wide variety of health and welfare needs, ranging from advice on minor illnesses and injuries to support for emotional issues. If more specialised help or treatment is required, she will help refer you or point you in the right direction via your GP, the University Counselling Service or other local service. Any information shared with the College Nurse is treated in strict medical confidence and will not be divulged to anyone without your consent.
