Confidentiality and Governance

The UCL Cultural Consultation Service is not a clinical service and does not provide medical treatment. However, where appropriate, we can help direct those whom we think will benefit from a more formal health consultation.

All enquiries to this service, and advice provided, are strictly confidential. More

Whilst maintaining confidentiality, our own work is overseen and audited through the office of the Vice-Provost (International) and the Dean of Students (Welfare). More
