Due to Covid-19 restrictions and guidelines it is currently not possible to have routine blood tests done at the Student Health Centre.

In line with the current Covid-19 restrictions we have had to make some alterations to our procedures:-

  • Our medical services will now be delivered initially by 'telephone/video triage' so it is important that you telephone first to make an appointment. The nurse, will ring you back as soon as possible and will advise if you need to attend in person to be seen.
  • You must give a minimum of 48 hours notice for a contraceptive clinic appointment.
  • All prescriptions are now electronically sent by the doctor directly to a local pharmacy.  You will not need to come in to the Student Health Centre just to pick up a prescription.

Please state when booking an appointment that you wish to book the contraceptive clinic and whether or not it is a repeat prescription issued previously by the Student Health Center or if it is your first time requesting a contraceptive prescription from us.

New consultations: All students who have not previously attended the Student Health Centre for contraception will need a full assessment by the nurse.  They will then be referred to the doctor for their first prescription. 

Renewal of prescriptions: Repeat prescriptions can be issued by the nurse but appointments must be booked at least 48 hours in advance. Please note, same day requests cannot be accommodated and it is therefore advisable not to leave it until you are running out of your prescription to book an appointment.

Morning after Pill: As it is best to access this as soon as possible, please contact a local pharmacy as the morning after pill can be dispensed over the counter following a brief health consultation.

Implanon: The implanon bar can be both inserted and removed at the Student Health Centre. Please state what you need when booking your appointment.

Copper Coil (IUD):  Students must have an initial appointment to get a prescription (€15) for the coil and have swabs taken on that day or on the same day they are having the coil put in (€75).  Please state when booking your appointment that this is what you require. The price of the Kayleena coil is €130 approximately.  The price of the copper coil is €60 approximately.

No routine screenings are currently being offered at this time due to the pandemic.  If you have any concerns or symptoms please give us a ring.  If necessary, you will be asked to attend the Student Health Centre to provide a sample.

Students must wait for a minimum of 2 weeks after unprotected sex before attending for screening in order to capture true results.

Students who test positive will be contacted by the nurse within 10 days of their appointment.

An STI screening involves the following:-

  • An initial full sexual history by telephone.
  • Appropriate examination where indicated.
  • For women: a vaginal swab is required and throat swabs where indicated. Vaginal swabs are available from the Student Health Centre waiting room.  Instruction leaflets will be supplied.
  • For men: A urine sample is required.  The first sample of the day is advised for best results. Urine bottles are available from the Student Health waiting room.
