The centre is run by a team of fully qualified Registered General Nurses with qualifications in paediatric minor injuries, travel health and wound care. It provides 24-hour care during school hours; on Saturday nights and Sundays a nurse will be on call.
The team looks after pupils with conditions such as asthma, hayfever and diabetes, as well as providing care for sudden illnesses or accidents. Pupils will be admitted by the nurses to the Medical Centre if they are too unwell to be at school. Parents will be contacted if the duty nurse feels the pupil would recover better at home. If a pupil needs to see a general practitioner urgently, an appointment can be made at Shere Surgery and arrangements will be made to take the pupil to Shere.
We place a great emphasis on confidentiality. All pupils are welcome to see us to discuss any concerns they may have, knowing it will go no further than the Medical Centre. We are non-judgmental and always happy to lend an ear to those who seek our help.
Below you will find a download for our parental consent form for pupils to be given prescribed medicine in school. Please return this to the Medical Centre once completed.

Travel Health and VACCINATIONS
We offer vaccinations to children who are travelling on overseas school trips. If parents are travelling abroad privately with their child, it is their responsibility to organise this via their local surgery (as a temporary resident) or by contacting Shere Surgery on 01483 202066.
Cranleigh Pharmacy also offers travel vaccinations and can be contacted on 01483 274323 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your child is travelling overseas with the School, i.e. a school trip, please email the Medical Centre at email@example.com. As some courses of injections need to be given over a period of 6 months, we would ask that you supply this information to us as far in advance of the trip as possible. Vaccinations are charged to parents at the prevailing NHS rate. This service is not available to Day pupils (unless they are registered with Shere Surgery).

The Wednesday surgery is usually run by a female doctor for those who prefer this option. If a pupil needs an urgent appointment and has missed the morning surgery, an appointment can be made at Shere Surgery.
Parents are welcome to accompany their child on an appointment, but please can we ask that parents inform the Medical Centre so that their childs appointment can be made at the end of the clinic. Parents are also able to make appointments for their child at Shere Surgery by phoning 01483 202066.
Dr. Sam Barke
Cranleigh School is in the very fortunate position of having an experienced Sports Consultant, Dr Sam Barke, who comes to the school and runs sports injury clinics. He provides in house injury assessment and rehabilitation advice working closely with the physiotherapy team from Cranfold. Where necessary Dr Barke will provide onward referral for further investigations and specialist input.
To avoid any confusion, should your child be seen by Dr Barke, we would expect him to follow the care through unless he makes the decision to refer on to a specialist consultant. Confusion arises when other consultants become involved without any initial discussion with Dr Barke.

As part of our new sports provision we are able to offer an assessment by Cranfold physiotherapist on site. There is no charge for the first assessment and one follow up. If the physio feels further treatment is needed then Dr Barke our Sports Consultant will generate a referral which can then be used for medical insurance purposes or you may wish to self-fund further treatment.
Physiotherapists from Cranfold Physical Therapy Centre visit daily to the Woodland Fitness Centre to treat referred pupils. This is a private arrangement and Cranfold charge £49 per session. Parents are contacted for consent and insurance details prior to booking any physiotherapy sessions.
