The Medical Centre is situated just outside the main school gates on Ashton Road and is run by a team of fully qualified Registered Nurses.  The Centre is supervised by the School’s Medical Officer, Dr Maurice Price, from the Mytton Oak Medical Practice:

We request that all new boarding pupils register through us at Myton Oak to allow seamless medical care during their time with us. As part of this registration they undergo a medical examination.

Dr Price and his practice operate under the guidelines set out by MOSA – the Medical Officers of Schools Association:

We hold a Doctor’s surgery every weekday during term time from 8am and concurrently run a Nurse-led triage clinic.  It is therefore important that pupils wishing to see the Doctor should be at the Centre by 8am.

The Centre is staffed 24hours a day providing in for advice and management of illness and injury as well as have support for long-term medical conditions.  We also offer counselling, routine vaccinations, as well as health education and promotion.  We have 12 beds within the Centre where we can monitor pupils more closely and they may remain here for overnight stays if necessary.

A Physiotherapist visits the Medical Centre weekly, to see any pupils who have been referred by the Doctor.

The School Dentist is Richard Gatenby of New Park House Dental Centre (formerly Hollings & Partners Dental Surgeons) and he provides any emergency care needed during term time.   He will perform a dental check if required but a charge will be made.  All pupils are expected to be registered with a dental practitioner at home and to receive regular dental care during the holidays.

At all times we offer an entirely confidential service to the pupils which complements the day-to-day pastoral care they receive.
