Providing a health service to students and staff of the University of Leicester

Victoria Park Health Centre (formerly Freemen’s Common Health Centre) has provided primary medical care to the students and staff 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.

Now also providing services to the local residents in Clarendon Park

For the first time in many years we are now accepting registration applications from local residents. 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. Blue Badge parking is bookable through reception, please have your registration number ready when calling.
