Update from the UC Health Centre

The UC Health Centre is here to support you. So that we can keep our patients and staff safe we aren’t providing a walk in service, so we ask that you please ring reception to make an appointment.

If you are an international student, studying at UC for a 3yr Undergrad degree or PhD, you can register for ManageMyHealth where you can book/cancel an appointment and request repeat medication online through a secure portal. You can also email your GP a quick clinical question through MMH.

If you are a domestic student fully enrolled at the UC Health Centre you can register for MMH.

Thank you for working with us as we support our UC Community.
