The College has a fully-staffed Medical Wing which provides general healthcare and first aid to pupils. Matron, or the evening duty teacher, will be the first port of call for pupils who are ill. They will be assessed and if deemed necessary will be sent to the Medical Wing. If a pupil is judged too unwell to be in College then they will be sent home. The Sisters will contact parents accordingly.
There are five inpatient beds within the Medical Wing for unwell or injured pupils.
The College Medical Officer is a family doctor from the Hart Surgery, York Road, Henley-on-Thames, RG9 2DR, 01491 843200. Surgeries for boarders are held on Monday and Friday mornings within the school’s Medical Wing.
The Medical Wing also makes appointments for the physiotherapist once a GP referral has been made to see them. Physiolistic, a local physiotherapy company based at Henley Rugby Club, keeps propriety appointments for Shiplake pupils.
On Rugby match days during the Autumn Term, a pitch side team of Medics is in attendance, well supported by the nurses in the Medical Wing.
The Medical Wing can be contacted via email on [email protected] or by phone on 01189 405 233.
