University students should be able to register with both their doctors surgeries at home and at university. We shouldn’t have to choose which one, and worry about “what if I get sick whilst I’m at home?”.

I personally have the experience where I needed my stitches out after an emergency operation and was turned away by my local surgery. I was also in need of an emergency prescription, but again, was turned away and told to go to my university doctor. I had to keep hoping I didn’t get ill whilst I was out of term time. We shouldn’t have to travel for it, especially as we're on limited money anyway. What if you go to university down south and your home is up north? It’s not practical to spend (example) £50+ on a train ticket to get to an appointment.

This is why we should be allowed to register at both places so that when we’re out of term time, we can still see a doctor. Please share this petition, I’m sure a lot of other students have the same or similar experiences as I do!
