Emergency Contacts

Unfortunately there may be times when you need emergency support. If this is out of normal staff working hours for the Student wellbeing Service (9am - 5pm) or if the University is closed, there are a number of external services that you can contact:‌

Your local out of hours GP / hospital services

The phone number for the out of hours GP in the University area is 028 90 976220. The GP Out Of Hours Service provides care for people when their normal GP surgery is closed. It is not intended to replace normal GP services, but deals with urgent problems that cannot wait until your own GP is available.
