Debbie Partridge and Lucy Patrick (pictured above, left and right) have set up a low cost clinic to promote and encourage easy access to homeopathy for staff, students and families linked to Exeter University.
Building on the successful practice of a previous on-campus homeopath, the clinic aims to provide a secure, friendly and confidential environment in which Lucy and Debbie, both qualified homeopaths, deliver comprehensive homeopathic treatment, including remedies.
Lucy writes: “Our first six months promoting homeopathy at Exeter University, thanks mainly to the funding from HAT, has been a positive experience.
The main things we have achieved during this timespan is:
- A weekly presence (stall) in a very visible, central area of the University (the foyer in the Students Guild).
- An ongoing weekly drop in for staff and students in a confidential environment.
- Ongoing networking with relevant staff members of the University, mainly the Sports Centre Wellness Officer and the new overall Wellness Manager.
- Stalls at University well-being events such as the Wellbeing Fayre and Valentines Fair at the beginning of the year.
- Evening introductory sessions to students in their halls of residence as part of the Healthy Halls programme.
- Treatment both chronic and acute of staff and students.
- Networking with other health professionals linked to the University.
- An agreement with the Students Guild who will endorse our activities next year.
- Working towards being part of the new Wellbeing Clinic being set up on campus next year.
- Evolving a working partnership with a fellow homeopath.
- The instigation of a new “University survival” basic homeopathy course over 3 weeks at the Sports Hall.”
