Registering with a Doctor

Students are strongly encouraged to register with a doctor as soon as possible after they arrive in London so that they can access healthcare as quickly as possible if they become ill or injured. When attending a university in the UK students are also advised to be vaccinated against Meningitis C.

The Ridgmount Practice is a National Health Service (NHS) practice providing healthcare and dental services for students living within its catchment area (i.e. near the main UCL campus). Students can also choose to register with a practice closer to where they live if they prefer. The Ridgmount Practice also runs a Walk-in Surgery which any UCL student can attend, even if they are not registered with the practice.
