Physical health services in the Students’ Union

Booking in with your GP may be your first thought for health and wellbeing worries or concerns however, you may find the Welfare and Support centre a ‘go to’ for complimentary services.

We don’t want to take the place of your GP surgery or Student health and Wellbeing Services but do offer free resources and information that might help during your time at Newcastle.

The Welfare and Support Centre is located on the ground floor of the Students’ Union, close to the Co-op.
