Remember your medication

If you regularly use any medication you must ensure that you bring at least 4 weeks supply with you to university. It can take this long for your notes to transfer from your GP at home to your new GP in Derby. This can delay you getting a new prescription.

If you are unable to get 4 weeks supply, for whatever reason, please contact us in the Student Wellbeing Service so we can discuss other options with you.

You can find some brief guides to the different types of medication prescribed for mental illness on the NHS website. If you are concerned about the impact of your medication on your academic performance do not stop taking it. Please either contact your GP or The Student Wellbeing Service to discuss this.

You can find the guides here.
