BSA virtual day seminar

Title: Medical matters for non-medical staff


Date: March 16, 2021
Time: 10:30 - 12:30 and 13:30 - 15:30
Speaker: Jill Hill, BSA Nurse Advisor and Head of Medical Health & Welfare, Cheltenham Ladies' College


This seminar will provide a medical overview and share key indicators for medical conditions likely to occur amongst your boarders for boarding staff who take medical responsibility for the students in their care, and for those who may not have a medical facility on site. The day will include common medical conditions, the safe storage and administration of medicines, 'red flags', mental health and medical policies. 
This is a valuable day for anyone managing a boarding house with access to medicines for distribution, or for any staff member who may routinely be involved in the care of young people, and provision of medicines.


Training day breakdown:

  • Safeguarding
  • Policies and procedures
  • Management of medicines
  • Confidentiality and consent
  • Supporting pupils with long term conditions
  • Infection control
  • 'Red flags'.


Speaker: Jill Hill, BSA Nurse Advisor and Head of Medical Health & Welfare, Cheltenham Ladies' College
Jill left a long career in Emergency Care in 2012 following a variety of roles including Emergency Nurse Practitioner, Lecturer Practitioner and finally Senior Sister for a total of 15 years. Jill sought to find a role where she was making a difference in people's lives, their experience of health, illness, grief and sometimes despair. With a continuing desire to continue to champion Nursing through promoting good practice, the role of Lead Nurse at Cheltenham Ladies' College was perfect and Jill joined the team in 2012.

In 2018, Jill took up an additional post as BSA Nurse Advisor alongside Jane Graham (St Teresa's, Effingham) providing training and advice to member schools and individuals. Now Head of Medical Health & Welfare at CLC, Jill continues to be a strong advocate of Nursing as a profession, working with a team built on trust, collaboration and mutual respect transferable across professions.
