Medical Support and Counselling

We take your health seriously at Nescot and make every effort to serve healthy nutritious food in our eateries and give you access to sporting facilities and training to maintain your fitness. Should you encounter more serious health difficulties, the College Nurse, Irene White, is available to provide medical care during term time from Monday to Thursday, 9.30am - 4.30pm.

There is no need to make an appointment, but you should be prepared to wait.  The Nurse is situated within the Osteopathy Clinic in N17.

Our nurse can help you with:

  • first aid and emergencies
  • advice about medical concerns
  • contraceptive advice
  • dispensing some medication.

If a student is too ill to return to class the nurse will inform their course leader. With the student's consent, the nurse will contact their parents or carers and arrange transport home. If the student requires hospitalisation the nurse can also arrange this.



We also have expert counsellors available to all students to talk to in confidence about any issues affecting them during their time at Nescot.

Counselling sessions last 50 minutes and are usually by appointment, but the counsellors will see clients at short notice whenever possible.

Clients may require just one or two sessions but we can also offer short programmes of up to 10 sessions. If longer term therapy is required clients will be referred to an external provider.

Counselling is confidential and we will not provide information on who is receiving counselling or the content of the sessions.

It is usually inappropriate for counsellors to work with people undergoing therapy with a professional in another organisation.

Counselling is available every day of the week.
