We are NHS general medical practice offering general medical care, both to the local non-student population and to all those Brunel students living either on the Uxbridge campus or within our extensive practice area. When appropriate, we can register students from outside our immediate catchment area. This may not be appropriate for certain medical conditions and home visits will not be able to be undertaken.
We have been established since 1982 and are based at Brunel University campus in modern and disabled-friendly premises.
If you are away from home and away from your existing doctor, we cannot stress strongly enough how important it is for you to register with us whilst you are studying at Brunel University in order that our team of doctors and nurses can look after you if you are unwell.
You are welcome to join the practice, provided you live within the extensive boundary area. In order to register patients we request 1 proof of a photo ID, 1 proof of your current address, NHS Number and Student ID if applicable to enable instantaneous Medical Records transfer from your previous practice.
The PGM and BMA guidance confirms the following:
Anyone, regardless of nationality and residential status may register and consult with a GP without charge. A GP practice’s discretion to refuse a patient is limited. Under the terms of their primary medical services contracts, GP practices cannot refuse an application to join its list of NHS patients on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation, appearance, disability or medical condition. Practices can refuse an application to join a practice list if:
- we have agreed that the practice can close their list to new patients,
- the patient lives outside the practice boundary ; or
- the practice has other reasonable grounds
Your registration status with us will depend on whether you are a visitor, staying temporarily in the area or are a permanent resident. As it often takes some time for records to be forwarded from your former practice all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and are offered a new patient health check with the nurse.
If you would prefer to register in person, please visit the Medical Centre.
