We are a small team of two nurses that strive to help students develop new skills to empower themselves and become more responsible for their own health and wellbeing. We work with colleagues as part of the Wellbeing Team and together we offer free advice and support relating to health, mental health and counselling to all USW Students. Whether it's on campus or off, a bit of a runny nose or something more serious, we're here to help you in the best way possible.
Hi! My name is Beth, I've worked for USW for almost 3 years, prior this I worked for the NHS in various departments, the Private sector and also for the Police. All of this experience has come in very handy for student health, in ways that would surprise you! Needless to say i'm not easily shocked or embarrassed. The feedback I value the most is students find me really easy to talk to and appreciate my straight talking approach.
I love the varied work that being at USW brings. In addition to dealing with injuries and illness one of the aspects of my job that I enjoy the most and feel is a vital part of our role is enabling and supporting students to learn to take responsibility and care of their own health and wellbeing.
Hello, my name is Janice but I prefer to be called Jan. I have worked in Student Health for over 25 years so you could probably safely say that I enjoy my job here at the University! I enjoy the surprise factor of the job, I never know what I’m going to be confronted with and I would say that I’m never shocked anymore ! USW Health Service is part of the Wellbeing Team and I very much enjoy being part of the bigger team that supports USW students to have the best student experience possible.
