The Campus Pharmacy will be closing on Tuesday 31 March.
Unfortunately, after many years of trying to secure a licence to dispense prescriptions, we have not been successful which means the Campus Pharmacy will be closing.
However, this doesn’t mean you will lose all the support all you need and we will continue to offer a range of services. And for all other services, you will be able to find them at all the local pharmacies in Hatfield and at your own GP.
Read our FAQs below to see what is changing and the support available to you.
If you still have some questions, please get in touch; firstname.lastname@example.org
Where should I go if I need to talk to a pharmacist or need medical advice?
There are lots of options available to you:
- If you haven’t already, you can sign up to the Medical Centre on campus. They have Nurses, Doctors and staff who run all the usual services of a GP practice. You can book appointments, get prescriptions, and talk to our qualified medical team.
- If you don’t want to sign-up on campus, you can talk to your own GP who you are registered with.
- If you simply want to talk to a pharmacist, we have at least five local pharmacies in Hatfield that are within walking distances from both campuses.
- If you want something specific, you can search for the medication on the NHS website and they will give you all the pharmacies where that medication is available and which ones are open now.
Where can I go to get general medication like paracetamol and ibuprofen etc?
You will still be able to purchase over-the-counter medication on campus from the Premier shops on both campuses.
Where can I go for sexual health advice?
- You can get free condoms, chlamydia testing kits and free sanitary products from Hertfordshire Students’ Union’s Advice and Support Centre. Visit the SU website or find out more on Ask Herts.
- You can also access the Youth Connexions – Sexual Health Team, every Tuesday in The Oval, College Lane, from 17.30 – 19.30. This is a drop-in session so you do not need an appointment.
- Alternatively, you can find all of the local sexual health services and clinics in Hertfordshire,
- You can also get advice about the morning after pill and contraception, and order it online here
