Registering with a doctor
Whether you are from the UK or abroad we strongly advise that you register with a local General Practitioner (GP) during your time at the Royal Conservatoire. International students at RCS have the same access to the National Health Service (NHS) as those students who are ordinarily resident in the UK. Some NHS services are free and some need to be paid for. More information can be found at UKCISA Healthcare in Scotland
Most Conservatoire students register with Dr Leslie and Partners (Drs Leslie, Ojo and Chetty) at as it is only a short distance away from the Renfrew Street site and Wallace Studios. The address is Woodside Health & Care Centre, 891 Garscube Road, Glasgow, G20 7ER. The contact telephone number is 0141 201 5560
Once you become a student at the Conservatoire you can register online with Dr Leslie and Partners.
Specialist medical care
We have a register of private medical specialists in fields relevant to performance in music, drama and dance. If you experience a programme-related medical problem that is causing you difficulties in your studies and cannot easily be dealt with by your GP, the International and Student Experience team may be able to make arrangements for you to have a free consultation with a specialist practitioner. You should email firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance. https://portal.rcs.ac.uk/health-services/
For those who are interested in keeping fit there are various gyms/fitness centres in the Glasgow area and links to those closest to the Conservatoire can be found below:
If you’re an international student on a short-term exchange you might find the gym at Glasgow Caledonian University has the most flexible range of payment options. Having a UK bank account is not a pre-requisite for membership. For further information go to http://www.gcu.ac.uk/arc/
The Students’ Union also offers a number of health and wellbeing classes on a weekly basis. More details will be given to students upon starting their studies.
