We hope to help you remain fit and healthy for the full duration of your university course and beyond. This site contains full details of the services offered by the team, as well as useful health advice and information.
If you are worried about a health problem however, you can arrange an appointment with our service on 021-4902311 or call to the department where the receptionist will arrange a clinic appointment for you. Note: It is not possible to book an appointment via e-mail or on-line. If you are acutely ill on the day, your problem may initially be assessed by a nurse and if necessary seen by the doctor as soon as possible.The Student Health Department hopes that you will remain healthy of mind and body during your University life and will provide whatever help we can to help you achieve this. We have limited resources so all students are reminded of the need to be registered with a local General Practitioner. This service is complementary to the services available to you though your General Practitioner and cannot and does not purport to be responsible for the provision of General Practitioner services to any student.
All consultations are completely confidential, and will only be revealed to others with your consent. Your medical notes are also confidential and remain in the Student Health Department. They do not form part of your academic file.
