Health Centre Management

Regular users of the website will see that there is a new heading in the members' area, Health Centre Management. Under this are a number of very useful documents put together by Council members Bev Gilbert of Wellington College and Liz Carey of Charterhouse and which provide valuable information for any MOSA member who has responsible for running a school health centre.

Mrs. Kathy Compton retires from MOSA Council

Mrs. Kathy Compton attended her final Council meeting on Thursday 29th June 2017 when she was presented with a gift and a congratulatory card by MOSA president, Dr. Jonathan Holliday.

Kathy was formerly senior nurse at Plymouth College having trained and worked initially as a teacher before turning to nursing. She set up the health centre at the College in 1993 and then became involved with the Royal College of Nursing Independent School Nurses’ Forum, the Boarding Schools Association (BSA) and MOSA. She was the first nurse to join MOSA Council, initially as a co-opted member attending meetings annually and then latterly as one of the three full time nurse members.

She was very involved with nurse training and tutoring for the BSA, and worked as a consultant to schools advising on their healthcare provision. She retired from Plymouth College in 2014 and having served MOSA for further three years, she has now decided that she should retreat from schools medicine and enjoy retirement with her husband, David.

MOSA is indebted to her for all the work that she has done for both nurses and doctors and being in the vanguard of the gradual and increasing involvement of nurses in the work of the Association. We wish Kathy and David a long and happy retirement and if anyone sees them in their motorhome on the A30 as they trundle off on a new adventure, give them a toot and a wave which will surely be reciprocated!
