Support for students

Student health

All students are advised to register with their local GP.

The University of West London works closely with Florence Road and Bramley Road surgeries, and all enrolled students can register with their Practice.

The Practice offers exclusive appointment sessions for University of West London students. Appointments are primarily available at the Bramley Road surgery, but appointments are also available at Florence Road.

The Surgery will always try to accommodate students who need an appointment outside of the exclusive session times at either surgery and also offer an out of hour’s service.

The Practice is also able to provide students who are registered with them emergency health care outside of the normal surgery hours, and are members of Harmoni which is a local co-operative that provides out-of-hours services when the surgery is closed.

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

How to register with a GP

To register with your preferred practice, new patients are asked to provide their Student ID card and a Student Status letter.

You may also be asked to provide details of your previous GP and your NHS number. Please visit the surgery website for further information.
