Health and Wellbeing at Buxton - Buxton's Student Wellbeing Service - University of Derby

Health and Wellbeing at Buxton


If you're thinking about improving your general health and wellbeing, we can advise you on the practical ways to give up smoking, lose weight safely and permanently, how to follow a healthy exercise regime, as well as supporting you with any health or wellbeing related concern.

In fact, we can support you with any health or wellbeing related issue you may be experiencing. We provide:

  • practical health related advice and guidance
  • advice on contacting your doctor or other external health professional, and assistance to make a doctor's appointment if you require support with this
  • free condoms
  • a wide range of leaflets about all aspects of health. 
  • details of local health services such as GP Practices.

Contraception and sexual health

We offer a confidential sexual health service and there's also a Sexual Health Clinic on most Wednesdays in term time, where you can access sexual health screening, contraception and specialist advice and guidance.

More information

Drop-in health sessions available throughout the week (except Thursdays). Contact us for times.
