The College Nurse is Helen Thorton. She is available on Mondays from 9am-12am, Wednesdays from 10am-1:30pm, and Saturdays from 9am-12:30pm. Her room is in staircase 7, and she can be contacted at [email protected] or at ☎ 01865 279639. She can also do room/house visits if necessary. Outside of the nurse's hours, the following health resources are also available:

Express Clinic

The College Doctors run an ‘Express Clinic’, Monday - Friday from 11am - 1pm. To book this, you need to phone 01865 240501 and ask for the Express Clinic. If you call before 11am, you will be guaranteed an appointment that day.

College Doctors, ☎ 01865 240501

The College Doctors are at 19 Beaumont Street, Oxford. General surgery hours are 8.30-12.30 and 2-6 Monday to Friday; Saturday 9.30-11 for urgent problems only. You can make routine appointments with them or any of their partners. Consultations with doctors are free, but if they give you a prescription to have filled at a pharmacy, this will cost you approximately £7.

Sexual Health

If you want advice about sexual health, there is a drop in service, operating out of The Rectory Medical Centre, Rectory Rd, OX4 1BU; you can just rock up if you have any queries, or ring on 01865 226969. Contraception is available free from the doctors or at the Alec Turnbull Clinic on Cowley Road. A condom machine is located at the bottom of Staircase 6. Limited emergency supplies will be kept in the MCR loo cabinet. Rape alarms are available from the Welfare Officer upon request.


Ox Brookes run a dental clinic called Studental and they have agreed to allow all students from the university to go there for check ups and more urgent work. The government has abolished registration so when you phone for an appointment you just need to say which college you are from and to take your student card with you as proof. There are leaflets about Studental outside the college nurse’s room.
