Health Services and Walk-in clinics

Student Emergency Response Team (SERT), Health Services
SERT is a student run, volunteer organization providing emergency medical response that is dispatched through the Campus Community Police Services. The value of SERT has been recognized by the Ministry of Health, and as a result, it is incorporated in the tiered response to Western. In case of a medical emergency, CALL 911 from a campus phone or call campus police directly at 519-661-3300 if using a mobile phone. SERT is unable to provide medical advice over the phone.

Walk-in clinics
Walk-in medical clinics provide immediate medical care for individuals who require medical attention and who do not have a family doctor or are unable to reach their family doctor. Appointments are not necessary; however, clinic hours are variable and need to be confirmed prior to going to a specific clinic. These clinics are busy and wait times for each clinic will vary. A valid Ontario OHIP card must be presented for each visit. To view all London walk-in medical clinics, go to Health Line.

Security

The Campus Community Police Service consists of a team of dedicated professionals that provide a safe and secure environment to community members and guests at Western University and its affiliated University Colleges. Patrol officers and their supervisors are sworn in as Special Constables and have authority “on campus” similar to that of London Police.

  • Non-emergencies or inquiries: 519-661-3300
  • Emergency: 911

The Campus Community Police Service is operational 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The Communication and Reception is accessed through a 24 hour entrance at the rear of the Stevenson-Lawson Building (Room 1257, STVH).

Blue Emergency Phones

These are emergency phones, which provide direct two-way communications to the Police Communications Operators in the Communications Centre. There are 22 Emergency Phones located strategically on grounds throughout the campus. At any campus location you are only a few seconds away from a direct link to the Police should a situation arise where you require assistance.

The Code Blue Emergency Phones are simple to operate. With a touch of the “Emergency” button, a direct 9-1-1 emergency communication line is established and the user is connected to a Police Communications Operator.
