Alongside our full time School Nurse, we also have weekly visits at the Academy by a local GP for our residential School and College students.
Closely linked with a local surgery for many years, if your child wishes to see the GP at the local surgery instead of at the Academy, they are also able to do this easily. The surgery and GP are fully aware of individual health needs which can arise for our Deaf students.
If your child wishes to see the GP, they can do so independently with full access to an interpreter at every session. All the information that is discussed with the GP, the interpreter and your child is dealt with in the strictest of confidence.
