Medical Centre

The purpose-built Medical Centre is managed by our friendly, qualified nursing staff who are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week during term time. The Centre is in close proximity to the boarding Houses and provides comfortable accommodation for boarders if they are unwell. We also have a quiet room that is used for sensitive meetings and counselling.

All boarders are registered as NHS patients with the School Medical Officer. This local GP (General Practitioner) from Victoria Surgery in Bury St Edmunds takes a close interest in the pupils at Culford. Victoria Surgery provides a twice weekly GP surgery for boarders at the school's Medical Centre.
