Our qualified English speaking nursing staff live on campus and are on-call 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Nurses attend all competitive sports events. There is a Prem Medical Centre in the Administration building which is staffed from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., as well as a fully equipped medical centre in the Boarding clusters.
Our Prem Nurses attend to the medical needs of students including dispensing medicine and escorting boarding students to the hospital or dentist. They also help secure emergency hospital treatment when necessary. If a student is sick during the day and can not go home, they will stay in the Medical centre and be monitored throughout the day. In the case of boarding students, a clinic is available each evening from 8:00–9.30 p.m. to ensure that the student is well and not needing further attention from a doctor.
Prem nurses also collaborate with teachers and parents to promote health and wellbeing through initiatives such as handwashing awareness and to make meaningful links with the curriculum where possible. They conduct an annual screening with all Junior School students to monitor health and wellbeing.
Boarding has a team of nurses who reside on campus; this ensures that someone is available 24/7. If a student is sick during the day, the student can remain in the Medical centre where the on-duty nurse will monitor them.
The school has negotiated a comprehensive medical insurance package with Bupa Blue Cross, a global health insurance company. It is compulsory for all boarding students to have this Medical insurance which is included in boarding school fees.
Prior to the arrival of your child, all relevant medical information which will assist us in providing the best possible care for your child must be completed during the application process. This information is confidential and stored in the Medical centre.
On occasion our students do need to make a hospital visit. When this occurs, a member of our nursing or boarding staff will generally accompany students to their appointment. Parents are notified by the nursing staff or a senior member of the boarding staff. If the hospital visit is of an urgent nature, parents will be contacted immediately. If a student is hospitalised, then our nursing staff will always stay with the child overnight. There is excellent hospital care in Chiang Mai. Parents can feel confident that their child is being cared for until they arrive in Chiang Mai.
Major medical emergencies receive an immediate response. Nursing cover is provided throughout the school day, during overnight school trips and at events hosted at the school at weekends.
In the event of a medical emergency, parents will be contacted first. Parents must identify an additional emergency contact person for each child and provide their contact information.
