Our Head of Wellbeing, Dr Susan Imrie, is available to meet with students about their wellbeing and can offer one-off or ongoing support and advice. She can also advise and help students to access further support, if needed, in College, the University or the NHS.
Her office is in the Wellbeing Centre on the lower ground floor of Fountain Court, and she is in college every weekday from 9am to 5pm.
If the door is open, just drop in. If it’s closed, then please email her on firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an appointment.
