This team provide 24hr care for the boys during Term Time. The team is supported by a Healthcare Assistant and Administrator. Each member of the Nursing Team has an area of interest or expertise on a variety of topics, including Asthma, Acne and Emotional Health. A named nurse is attached to each Social, so as to act as a “Link” and will liaise regularly with Pastoral House Mistresses and Tutors regarding the boys or particular areas of healthcare.
