Being Well at Wolfson
For confidential listening and advice students can speak to any member of the College welfare team made up of the Senior Tutor, Academic Registrar, Welfare Officers and Peer Supporters.
Kerry Minton, the college nurse, runs a clinic from Wolfson, which students can access through making an appointment. She can provide all students with practical medical advice and support assessing and dealing with minor ailments and injuries, discussing problems and responding to medical emergencies while on duty.
Wolfson College clinic times, weeks 0 - 9 (appointment necessary):
- Tuesdays, 10.00 - 14.00
- Wednesdays, 13.30 - 16.30
- Thursdays, 13.30 - 16.30
If you wish to book an appointment, please contact Kerry.
If you are experiencing a welfare problem please e-mail the Welfare Officers (details below) and they will get back to you as soon as they can. Our Welfare Officers are trained in medical fist aid, mental health and listening skills but they are not medical professionals or counsellors. The College cannot guarantee 24/7 availability and if you have an emergency overnight, please contact the Lodge on 01865 274100.
Peer Supporters provide support within the College - if you have doubts or concerns to work through, or just need an impartial, completely confidential ear to listen, we're here to help you out, providing an informal and friendly service.
How to get in touch? You can email to set up a meeting or get in touch on behalf of friends that you're worried about.
