Medical Centre

Kingswood is fortunate to have a well-equipped Medical Centre which is staffed 24 hours a day, during term time, by a team of dedicated, well trained and highly professional staff. The Nurses have a wide range of experience in child related illness such as asthma, diabetes, allergies and the treatment of sporting and minor injuries.

The Resident Sister, Mrs Helen Skinner RGN RSCN, is supported by Nurses Mrs Gillian Magniac RSCN and Mrs Samantha Young RN Child. Mrs Rachel Oriedge helps as the Medical Centre Assistant.

The Medical Centre has a treatment room, waiting area and consulting room. Students are able to stay in the Medical Centre if unwell and there are four beds for boys, three for girls and a single room which can be used for isolation if necessary. Daily routine clinics are run which students can access directly and the Medical Centre is always on hand for medical emergencies. The Medical Centre also plays an important role in the Pastoral Care at Kingswood and staff are always available to support students.

Doctors from Oldfield Surgery hold surgeries twice a week on Monday and Friday mornings. Students are able to choose whether to see a male or female doctor. All boarders are registered with this surgery. If pupils need to be seen by a Doctor between these visits they are taken to the surgery in Oldfield Park by the Medical Centre Assistant.

As well as caring for sick or injured students the school nurses also offer health screening, travel advice, immunisation and vaccination programmes, advice and support for parents and staff and student counselling. There is a confidential service provided by 'Off the Record' on a Friday and the Centre also organises hospital, dental, orthodontic and other appointments.
