All Students Welcome
The Practice has many years’ experience in student health. We understand the ups and the downs of student life for both UK and international patients. We also recognise it can be a difficult time for parents when their child is ill and they are away from home. We hope that you find the information below helpful.
We are the nearest NHS surgery on the South side of the Campus just across the Shinfield Road from the Sports Park.
