Along with excellence in Science, the Unit recognises the importance of providing a healthy supportive environment that makes working here a fulfilling experience. As a Unit, we are committed to supporting mental and physical well-being of all our staff and students, promoting freedom of thought and creativity and nurturing a congenial social ambience that celebrates diversity, shuns discrimination and enables personal development.





We achieve this through an open-inclusive culture overall and through numerous events organised by the Unit itself (eg Bring-a Dish parties, Happy hours, Wellbeing2summer barbecues and Christmas parties, fundraising events, volunteering opportunities at schools outreach and other public engagement activities) and also through taking advantage of the numerous events, talks and activities offered by the School of Clinical Medicine and across the University as a whole. We  celebrate scientific and other achievements of all our staff and students through our quarterly newsletters and by broadcasting widely through social media channels, newsletters and websites both at the School and across the University and MRC communities.

The Clinical School also runs an extensive Wellbeing Programme, which includes Counseling and Mental Health First Aiders service, and is accessible to all members of the Unit. More information about Wellbeing initiatives and associated services available through the School and the wider University are enlisted under the Wider Support section of this page.
