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

  • All appointments must be booked in advance and made by telephoning 061 202 534.  It is not possible to book via email or by calling in to the Student Health Centre Reception.
  • Payment must be made in advance over the phone at the time of booking the appointment.
  • We cannot offer any walkin appointments as access to the Student Health Centre will be very restricted and controlled in a manner to ensure compliance with Covid-19 guidelines.
  • For general doctor, general  nurse and contraception appointments, students will have the option to either have a telephone or face to face consultation.
  • The STI clinic and physiotherapy appointments will operate as normal.
  • Urgent appointments are accommodated as much as possible for students who are acutely unwell and in need of medical attention.  In the event we are unable to facilitate you, a list of alternative options will be provided.
  • All prescriptions are now electronically sent by the doctor directly to a local pharmacy.  It is not necessary to come in to the Student Health Centre just to pick up a prescription.
  • NB! On the day of your appointment you must check yourself in using the laptop located in the waiting room.  The waiting room is located opposite room CM046.  If you do not check in the medical team will not know you are there.

When ringing, please state what specific type of consultation you wish to book e.g. general doctor, contraceptive clinic, STI, physiotherapy etc.
