Doctors' Practice

LMH requires all students to register under the NHS (or make a private arrangement) with the College Doctors who are part of the Banbury Road Medical Centre, 172 Banbury Road - tel: 01865 515731. To ensure you receive continuity of care, it is advisable that you remain registered for the duration of your course. You will still be able to receive treatment elsewhere on the NHS, for example during vacations, by registering as a ‘temporary resident’.

Student Support Co-ordinator

Clare Atkin is part of the Academic Office team and it is her role to facilitate the academic support of both undergraduate and postgraduate students with registered disabilities throughout the student’s academic life cycle – starting when they come to interview, through to when they sit their final examinations, in liaison with the Disability Advisory Service. Clare is Secretary to Grants Committee, and also facilitates the Financial Support Review Panel meetings.

You can email Clare at student.support@lmh.ox.ac.uk.
