Hunt Health Centre
The Hunt Health Centre, pictured above, opened on 2nd November 2009. Named after Lord Hunt of Fawley (S.1924), it is an attractive and modern facility that will encourage our boys and girls to seek help when they need it, and provide them with the most up-to-date health care. It has three double and four single bedrooms with ensuite facilities, treatment and consulting rooms, an inner-courtyard and a reception area. The heating and domestic water system uses the latest air to water heat pump technology, reducing our CO2 emissions and fuel consumption, and uses renewable energy.
Charterhouse has a highly qualified medical team offering a wide range of services. We hold a Doctor’s surgery each morning with an appointment system and concurrently run a nurse-led triage clinic. The nurses have access to the Doctors at the Mill Medical Practice for emergencies that need immediate medical care. We also offer vaccination clinics, travel advice and routine vaccinations. Health education and promotion is integral to our care.
We run asthma and diabetic clinics where we encourage the pupils to understand the disease process and recognise when they may be at greater risk. We have ten beds within the unit where we can monitor pupils more closely and they may remain here for overnight stays if necessary.
The Bevan Wilson physiotherapy team offer surgeries in the Health Centre and the QSC (Queen's Sports Centre) and are fully recognised by medical insurance schemes.
At all times we offer an entirely confidential service to the pupils. We encourage an open access to the pupils and we offer an extension to the day to day pastoral care within a busy school environment.
