Medical Centre

The St Phillips Medical Centre| is located on the second floor of Tower 3 and provides full NHS services to registered patients.

Currently all students who live in the UK for at least six months are eligible for free NHS primary care by a general practitioner (GP). However, in 2015, the UK government plans to introduce a a surcharge for use of the NHS for all visa applications of over six months. Indicators are that Tier 4 students may need to pay £150 per year, payable in full at the time they make their visa application. Students here for a shorter period are advised to obtain private insurance.

Please note that St Phillips Medical Centre is not linked with LSE; students must still register at this GP to be seen for appointments.

If you live outside the immediate area of the School, including halls of residence in the SE1 postcode, you should register with a local GP.
