Health Service To Be Free

Health Service To Be Free

The University hopes to obtain finance from the Government to establish a free student health service. No reply has yet been received to its queries.

It would be run by a medical director of student health working part time.

The service would provide an optional annual medical interview for all students which could include a physical examination and discussion of personal health matters. Similar services for those who wanted them would be available throughout the year.

The service would help students solve ther health problems, and would co-operate with the Student Cousellor in helping students suffering from "emotional disturbances."

There is also provision for general medical services for students who do not have a doctor in Wellington. The service will encourage students to use facilities provided by the Department of Health, including x-rays, examinations and vaccinations.

A student counselling service, separate from the health service is proposed. It will assist students "suffering from emotional and personality problems." It will be sited adjacent to the health service, and run in close association.
