Telephone: 0151 285 3535
Opening hours: Monday to Friday 07:00 to 22:00 hours
The Royal Liverpool Hospital A&E department is very busy and the waiting time for minor injuries may be much longer than at the NHS Walk in Centres. If the condition appears too serious to be handled locally, an emergency ambulance should be called to ensure rapid access to University premises.
This service is free and confidential. One-to-one counselling to students and staff is available on a self-referral basis. The main base and reception is located on the mezzanine level of Kingsway House, 24 Hatton Garden. The Counselling Service telephone number is (0151)231 3153 and the e-mail adress is firstname.lastname@example.org
