Glenalmond College has its own medical centre with committed and skilled nursing staff.
The nursing staff are available for pupils with medical problems, or for those who just need to chat about something that's worrying them.
There are trained nurses on duty in the medical centre. Prospective parents are welcome to meet the staff when they come to look around the school.
Parents are asked to give details of their child's recent and previous medical and vaccination history as part of the paperwork to be completed. Upon arrival all pupils undergo a medical check to ensure that the school has a full medical history. All boarders are registered with the local GP.
The College Doctors are based at The Blue Practice Medical Centre in Crieff (01764 652283) and are:
College medical officers: Dr S. Evans, Dr C. Jones and Dr G J De la Haye
The doctors hold two surgeries a week on Monday and Thursday starting at around 2.15pm. Parental approval is needed for all vaccinations.
Medical confidentiality is adhered to at all times. On occasions it may be necessary to divulge information to relevant parties, such as House staff, but this will be done only with the pupil's consent and only when the nurse considers it essential.
There is a strict 'no medicines in the Boarding House' policy for pupils. All medications, including paracetamol and homeopathic remedies, are held by the medical staff and House staff where necessary.
