LMH is passionate about nurturing a supportive and healthy environment for our whole community. We have a team of health professionals, tutors, support staff, and students dedicated to provide help and advice. These pages introduce you to the wellbeing team and their roles. The Oxford University Student Union's Student Advice Service is also a great resource. On this page, see who does what for wellbeing, and how you can contact them.

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 also Secretary to both Welfare Committee and Grants Committee.

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

Peer Supporters

The Peer Support Programme (see poster below) is a scheme run across the University by the Counselling Service. A team of students from the JCR and MCR, across a range of years and subjects, have been trained in active listening support - and you can contact either should you wish to speak with them. They are trained to help with welfare concerns and work to strict confidentiality rules. They have access to a range of resources they can refer you to, or can spend some time with you to support you through hard times. 

Peer supporters abide by a Code of Practice, attend regular supervisions to consolidate their training and develop their skills, and are available to be contacted for any difficulty big or small you might encounter during term. They are available to talk to any student confidentially. They can also be found at teas and events organised by the JCR and MCR.
