Being Well at Wolfson
For confidential listening and advice students can speak to any member of the College welfare team made up of the Welfare Officers, Peer Supporters, College Nurse, Student Support & Engagement Officer, Academic Registrar, and Senior Tutor.
Kerry Minton, the College Nurse, runs a clinic from Wolfson, which students can access by emailing her. 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.
If you wish to book an appointment, please contact Kerry. Please note that appointments will be held remotely on Teams in the first instance.
If you are experiencing a welfare problem please email the Welfare Officers at email@example.com and they will get back to you as soon as they can. Our Welfare Officers are trained in medical first 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, 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.
You can email them to set up a meeting or get in touch on behalf of friends that you're worried about. Please also feel free to contact the University's Rainbow Peers (LGBTQ student support) and Peers of Colour (BAME student support).
