If you need an emergency first aid kit, please notify the lecturer in your class immediately. The lecturer will direct you to a staff who is trained in first-aid and who can prescribe the correct medication/assistance to you.
If you are injured on campus and a lecturer is not available, please contact the Student Service Department for First Aid assistance. For minor illnesses, you may obtain a basic medication like Panadol, Actal, and Charcoal at SSD.
If you have an accident on campus that requires medical attention, it must be reported to the Student Service Department.
