Payments

  • Payment must be made by either cash, debit or credit card.
  • Payment must be made prior to actual consultation at the Student Health Centre.  Consultation or service will not be provided without payment being made first.
  • Only in an emergency case will another method of payment be deemed (by the clinician) to be acceptable.  Where possible, it would be necessary for this to be agreed prior to a service being provided.

NB! A €5 fee will apply for students who do not attend their appointment and who do not give advance notification to the Student Health Centre that they will not be able to attend.

** STI Fast Track Clinic**

Not everyone who attends the STI clinic needs to be examined.  If you have not noticed anything wrong and you have not been in contact with someone who has an infection, you may be interested in doing a very easy self-taken test that does not involve an examination.

If you have a lump or bump, pain or discharge you are advised NOT TO avail of this fast-track service.

The fast-track option involves:-

  • A much shorter waiting time in clinic. 
  • Testing for all the same infections as someone who is having an examination.
  • Blood tests and an explanation of how to take your own samples.
  • A urine sample for male students of the first passed urine of the day they intend to present.
  • Females will undertake a self vaginal swab.
  • Positive results will be actively followed up.
