HEALTH SERVICES

It is very important that you protect your health while studying at Queen Mary.

There is a free Student Health Service available on campus. Student Health Service is provided by Globe Town Surgery, an independent contractor to National Health Service (NHS) England operating as an unlimited liability partnership.

Students living in QMUL accommodation at Mile End or Whitechapel  and students living in the borough of Tower Hamlets (E1, E2, E3 and E14) are encouraged to register with the Student Health Service (located on campus in the Geography Building, Mile End (number 28 on map). 

Registrations can take place online or at the Student Health Service. You may still need to visit your new practice to confirm your registration, follow the instructions from your new practice. By pre-registering online you'll save time and reduce errors.

Please note if you haven't registered with a UK doctor before, please make sure you fill in your details as overseas and enter your date of entry in the UK. 

 

If you live in Dawson Hall at the Charter House Square campus or outside Tower Hamlets and are eligible for free NHS treatment, please ensure that you register with a doctor close to where you live. A list of local doctors is available here.
