Our clinic is a regulated healthcare service and in person consultations are conducted at Croftwell, Priormuir, St Andrews,KY16 8LP. Taking the Crail coastal road out of St Andrews, turn right after St Andrews Caravan Park at Brownhills garage, heading towards Anstruther. Our turning is the 3rd on the right, after the turning for Balmungo. The surgery is attached to the left side of the house. Please park in front of it and enter via the door on the left side of the building.
Students at the University of St Andrews are entitled to NHS treatment during their time at university and we recommend that you register with one of the two NHS general practices. There is now also an additional Nursing service at the practice, specifically to help students get access to timely healthcare.
However, some students do choose to use private GP services and this is where we can help. Perhaps you are a parent and living overseas? You just want to be sure that your child has easy and convenient access to a GP should they ever need it. Many health insurance policies will reimburse the cost of seeing a private GP, and so it is worth checking that with your provider. If you choose to see a private GP it will not affect your ability to access the NHS at any point, and you are freely able to use them both.
We offer a full list of services for acute and chronic physical conditions, mental health, medication, contraception, blood tests, investigations, sexual health screening and referrals. We can also administer Immunotherapy for those who are stable on treatment, with no history of adverse reactions.
If you’re an International Student heading to the UK and you’re on medication, please check with your Physician at home that the medication is licensed for use in the UK. Our GPs are usually able to continue prescribing stable repeat medications, but in some instances would request that you are under the care of a Specialist in the UK too. We can help arrange this for you if required.
