MEDICAL INFORMATION

Our new Medical Centre is located on the ground floor of Richmount House opposite the school chapel. Please help us keep your child’s medical records up to date. Medical Forms are filled in on admission to 1st year. If there are any changes to your child’s medical or surgical history, medications or allergies or mental health, please contact me as soon as possible so I can update your child’s medical records.  It is essential we have the most up to date information should an emergency arise whilst students are in our care.

Similarly, if your child suffers concussion or a head injury during time outside of school please ensure this is communicated with me before your child returns to school.

Students are not allowed to keep any prescription or ‘over the counter’ medication in their lockers or dormitories without the Nurse’s knowledge and permission.  Exceptions are Emergency medication, however this must be discussed with the nurse first.    Please contact me with any updates or concerns regarding your child’s health. My direct line is (023) 8844337 or you can email me on schoolnurse@bgsmail.ie – Laura Gibbs (School Nurse)
