How to speak to someone

You can access the helpline right away for help if you’re struggling, and it’s really easy to use.

Call 0800 028 3766 and one of Health Assured’s advisors will answer. You’ll be asked to confirm your University and then you’ll then be asked what your issue relates to so you can be put through to the right advisor to help you.

If an appropriate advisor is unavailable or on another call, you can request a call back, which means no call charges if you're not in the UK.
