Our designated school nurse, Camilla March, is on-site every Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday subject to availability.  Camilla holds a drop-in clinic where students can come along without an appointment. They may make an appointment if they wish through their tutor or directly with Camilla, however this is not necessary. Should a student need to discuss an urgent matter with Camilla when she is not on-site, they can contact the WMSF Main Reception line.
Students are welcome to visit Camilla to discuss any and all mental health concerns that they may wish to, however First Aid must be sought from First Aiders in the General Office.
