The wellbeing of our students is our top priority at Trinity. Your health and wellbeing work together to help you thrive and develop your full potential – academically and personally. Meet your team of professionals and peers in college and beyond, who can support and advise you during your time at Oxford. All concerned in student welfare respect confidentiality.
If you are worried about your safety or feel at risk of harming yourself, you need to access help immediately.
Urgent mental health advice: Call 111 if you need medical help quickly but there is not an immediate risk, or if you are unable to contact your GP surgery (e.g. due to its being out-of-hours). As well as physical health advice, this is a source of round the clock, non-emergency advice on accessing mental health support. (https://www.oxfordhealth.nhs.uk/news/mental-health-helpline-moving-to-nhs-111/)
Safe Haven: A late night safe space for people experiencing mental health crisis (run in partnership with Mind). Open 6pm – 10pm Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. You can self-refer on the night from 5pm by calling 01865 903037 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Oxfordshire Sexual Health Service: free sexual health screening (tests), treatment, contraception and advice, including emergency contraception and support and medical care following sexual assault: visit Sexual Health Oxfordshire online
If you feel your life is in imminent danger, you should call 999 or go to Accident and Emergency at the nearest hospital, which in Oxford is the John Radcliffe Hospital.
If you aren't sure whether or when to call 999, consult this advice: https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/nhs-services/urgent-and-emergency-care/when-to-call-999/
Outside normal surgery hours you can still phone your GP practice, but you'll usually be directed to an out-of-hours service. The out-of-hours period is from 6:30pm–8:00am on weekdays and all day at weekends and on bank holidays.
If you need urgent medical advice outside normal working hours (or think you need to see a doctor urgently) and it is not an emergency, please phone NHS 111. Your call will go to an NHS team of advisers who can give you healthcare advice and may direct you to an out-of-hours GP for further advice or an appointment, or to other medical services.
