Student Wellbeing

 

Most Colleges employ a College Nurse who can help with a variety of health and welfare needs.  This includes assessment, support and advice for students experiencing minor illnesses and injuries, mental health worries or more general support for all manner of concerns and personal or emotional issues. If more specialised help or treatment is required, the College Nurse can help refer you or point you in the right direction whether to your GP, the University Counselling Service or another local service. College Nurses are also involved in providing health education to students and members of the College.

 

College Nurses, as regulated nursing professionals, are bound by professional obligations relating to confidentiality. Most will publicise a confidentiality statement on their webpage and/or in College, or you can ask them what their confidentiality policy is if you are unsure. Find your College nurse:
