If you have a medical condition which may put you in need of requiring emergency treatment e.g. diabetes, epilepsy, it is essential that a member of staff within your course is informed. It would also be prudent to advise friends, close fellow students and a student warden (in the case of resident students) who may be with you if such an occasion arises. This ensures your own safety and that, correct prompt treatment of any incident is given.
