The Update Service

As you will be aware, one of the conditions on your offer is that you have a satisfactory medical clearance before you start your course. It is important that you read this section carefully to get an understanding of what is required in terms of this check. We need to establish if you have any specific needs so we can ensure necessary support is put in place for when you start the course.

Please follow the steps below:

  1. Read carefully the Instructions for completion of the occupational health forms
  2. Complete and Sign the Personal Occupational Health Questionnaire
  3. Take the General Practitioner (GP) form to the GP with whom you are registered to complete along with the accompanying GP Consent Form.
  4. Complete and sign the GP Consent Form and take to your GP with the GP Form
  5. Read carefully the Vaccination Information

Please note that both your GP form and your personal occupational health forms should be returned at the same time. If you return the forms separately the occupational health team will return the submitted form back to you until both forms are available.

Before sending in your Occupational Health forms we suggest that you take copies of all documents for your records.  Loss of the GP report can be a costly exercise to get a replacement.

Midwifery is classified as an Exposure Prone Procedure and as such you need to have blood tests prior to starting the course.  Please see Blood Test instructions for Midwifery Students.

We would like to remind you that all offers are conditional upon satisfactory occupational health clearance and police check.  Please note that you will be able to start the programme if the result of your occupational health clearance and police clearance has not come through before the start date; however, in order to go out on your first placement you must have both clearances.  Failure to have clearances prior to your placements will mean that you may be unable to continue on the course, so please do not delay in completing the required police and health forms.

Please return the completed occupational health forms in sealed envelope to:

Health & Social Care Admissions Team
Room FL1017
Sir Frank Lampl Building
Kingston Hill Campus
Kingston upon Thames
KT2 7LB

Clearly write your name (as it appears on your UCAS application) and the full title of your course on the back of the envelope.

If you have any queries regarding the above, please email preregadmissions@sgul.kingston.ac.uk

Best wishes
