The Student Medical Centre
The Student Medical Centre is the on-campus surgery for students of Roehampton University.
Located in Froebel College at Old Court, the surgery is open 9.30am to 5.00pm
Monday to Friday during term-time. During Easter, Christmas and Summer
breaks, patients are seen at Putneymead Group Medical Practice in Putney.
In line with current Covid-19 management guidelines, we will be offering a mixture of face-to-face, telephone and video consultations as appropriate. Prescriptions will be sent electronically to local pharmacies to reduce the number of times students will need to come to the medical centre. We will not be able to offer you an appointment unless you are registered.
Public Health England advise all students who are starting university in September to ensure that their immunisation schedule is up to date, specifically this includes having had 2 doses of the MMR vaccine and a Meningitis ACWY vaccine.
If you are unable to obtain these prior to your arrival please book an appointment as soon as possible when you are on campus.
You do not have to live on campus to register with us, simply register using this online form (see 'How do I register?').
It is more important than ever that you register online prior to your arrival to ensure that your health care records can be transferred from your current practice in good time.
We have nurses, physician associate's and GP's onsite and operate in the same way as your GP surgery at home.
