Providing a health service to students of the University of Leicester
Victoria Park Health Centre (formerly Freemen’s Common Health Centre) has provided primary medical care to the students of the University of Leicester for many years. Originally as Medical Officers but becoming independant from the University in 1983. The practice is fully conversant with the spectrum of health care needs within this academic community and the surrounding city population. Please check with a receptionist that your address is within the boundary before applying. All official 'Halls' addresses are within our student boundary.

We are accepting registration applications from local residents (including University of Leicester Staff living locally). Please check that your address is within the boundary before applying. Due to lack of adequate parking facilities we are unable to take people from a wider area. The University has kindly agreed for patients to continue to 'Pay & Display' in their Welford Road Car Park.
