Health FAQs

Where do I go to register with a doctor?

There is a free Student Health Service available on campus (located in the Geography Building at Mile End Campus, no. 28 on map). The Student Health Service is provided by Globe Town Surgery, an independent contractor to the National Health Service (NHS) England.

Registrations for the Student Health Service can take place online, for all students living in inner London unless for clinical reasons.  If you live outside inner London, or if you cannot register for clinical reasons or if more convenient to register with a doctor close to where you live.

I have a disability – who should I contact?

The Disability and Dyslexia Service offers support for all students with disabilities, specific learning difficulties and mental health issues at QMUL.

I would like to speak to someone about my mental health – who can I contact? 

Mental health support at Queen Mary is largely split between two teams: the Advice and Counselling Service, and the Disability and Dyslexia Service.

If you are concerned about your mental health and would like to someone urgently, please contact the Advice and Counselling Service with a view to making an appointment with one of our Mental Health Advisers. Mental Health Advisers will see students presenting with a mental health crisis in terms of their immediate safety; they can also offer interventions with students with poor mental health e.g. sleep hygiene, anxiety management etc. The Advice and Counselling Service also has a long established counselling team. To contact Advice and Counselling please complete their webform.

If you have an existing mental health diagnosis you can also contact one of the Mental Health Advisers, but if you are interested in accessing support through the Disabled Student’s Allowance (DSA) scheme, or accessing reasonable adjustments such as exam arrangements, you can contact the Disability Advisers (Mental Health) who are based in the Disability and Dyslexia Service. They can be reached on dds@qmul.ac.uk

If you are worried about your own safety or someone else's, please ring 999. For more information on support in a crisis please visit our webpage
