Health and Welfare
Here at Bishop Burton we take the health and welfare of our students very seriously.
We feel that to enable a student to achieve, they must be supported to be happy and healthy, both emotionally and physically so we have a wealth of experienced staff on campus and a good network of support agencies within the community.
Support is offered through the Health and Welfare Officer, based in Student Services, who will deal with your concerns in a sensitive, confidential and non-judgemental way. The Health and Welfare Officer also organises a number of health events throughout the year including Lifestyle Days, Well-Being Days, flu vaccinations and arranges for other health-related talks for students.
Residential students are expected to register with the local doctors' surgery. Appointments for residential students and transport to appointments will be provided by the College.
The College has a zero tolerance towards drugs and will deal quickly and formally with anyone found involved with drugs.
The College is a 'no smoking' campus but provides designated areas for smokers. Stop-smoking guidance is available on a one-to-one basis from the Health and Welfare Officer.
The College provides a sexual health clinic in the medical room in the Meadows every Friday 11am - 2pm. Students can freely access this confidential service. For advice outside of clinic times students can speak to the Health and Welfare Officer.
