About us

Young people going to college or university this autumn are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated against meningitis and septicaemia (blood poisoning) due to the MenW bug, one of the most aggressive and deadly strains of meningitis.

Occupational Health is a distinct branch of preventative health care, which works to promote health in the workplace and forms part of the overall health and safety management system, focusing on the management of work related health risks. This can include the prevention of work/study related ill health, facilitating rehabilitation after illness and injury, and promoting physical and mental wellbeing. Occupational Health provides advice to all levels of the College.
