Support for students

Health

All students are advised to register with your local GP.

The local Ealing GP practices work closely with University of West London, and students can register at the Florence Road and Bramley Road surgeries.

They aim to hold sessions at the Bramley Road Surgery exclusively for University of West London students on Monday afternoons 3pm - 5.30pm, and on Wednesday and Friday mornings 11am - 12 noon. Additionally University of West London students are also able to make appointments at Bramley Road Surgery on Saturday mornings. The Surgery will always try to accommodate students who need appointments outside of the exclusive session times at either Bramley Road or Florence Road.

They are also able to provide students registered at the surgery, with emergency health care outside of the above hours, and are also members of Harmoni which is a local co-operative that provides out of hours services during the hours that they are closed.

Any student within the Boroughs of Ealing, Hammersmith and Hounslow can register with either of the surgeries.

New patients are asked to supply their NHS medical card (if possible) and complete a form with their personal details along with a simple health questionnaire.
