Health and Wellbeing Centre - Welcome Information

For Undergraduate Freshers

As College Nurses (Rachel Lloyd and Jacqui Isbister) we welcome you to Girton College, and we look forward to meeting you during the course of your studies. We would like to share some important information relating to health issues that we’d appreciate you taking the time to read prior to your arrival.  

We’re experienced Registered General Nurses who have undertaken additional nursing qualifications, enabling us to support students with a wide range of health and welfare needs.

We offer assessment, support and advice for minor illnesses and injuries, mental health issues, sexual health & contraception, health advice, or more general support for all manner of worries and personal or emotional issues.  If more specialised help or treatment is required, we will refer or point you in the right direction whether via your GP, the University Counselling Service or other local services.

Deji Olaniyi-Maxwell is our Head of Welfare & Wellbeing. He is also based in the Welfare Centre and can be contacted by email.
