Registering with a GP

I'm a UK Citizen OR I've previously had an NHS doctor in the UK

You will already have a National Heath Service (NHS) number. It is strongly recommended that you register with your local medical centre or GP (General Practitioner) practice while at University, even if you already have a doctor in the UK.

If you return home at weekends or during the holidays you can be seen by your previous doctor as a 'temporary resident' - it all depends on where (in the UK) you will spend more than 50 % of your time. You can always re-register with your previous doctor if you return home permanently.

I've never had an NHS doctor in the UK before

You need to register with a medical centre or GP practice to obtain a National Health Service (NHS) number. This allows you to receive full NHS medical services while you are resident in the UK. Find your nearest GP practice or medical centre.

Who can register at St Philips medical centre?

You can register at St Philips if you live in the St Philips catchment area - see map of postcodes.  The catchment area does not cover any postcodes south of the river, this includes the following LSE halls of residence:

  • Bankside House
  • Sidney Webb House/Dover Street
  • Butlers Wharf.

Live within the catchment area? Please come to the St Philips Medical Centre reception in Tower 3, 2nd floor. 

If you need further help, phone St Philips Medical Centre on +44 (0)20 7611 5131.

Don't live in the catchment area of St Philips?

If you don't live in the catchment area of St Philips Medical Centre, find a GP practice or medical centre near you.

Local GP practice or medical centre unable to accept you?

If your local centre is not able to register you (for example their list of patients is 'full')  you'll need to find another medical centre or GP practice. You are legally entitled to be registered with a GP somewhere in your local area.

Phone your local Primary Care Trust (PCT) for a list of GP practices or medical centres in your local area. The PCT is the organisation that runs all the medical centres in your area.
