How to make an appointment
If you are worried about a health problem, you can arrange an appointment with our service on 021-4902311 or by calling 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.
At peak times the Department may be so busy as to have a 1 week wait for a routine appointment.
If you think you are ill as to require to be seen on the same day please advise our receptionist and every effort will be made to have you seen by nurse or doctor on that day.
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. UCC is not responsible for the provision of GP 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.

Looking for Health Information On-Line?
Many people use the Internet as the first port of call when looking for health information.
The website used by many of our own team in Student Health is the www.patient.co.uk website.
You can use their search tool to help you, but beware and avoid the trap of self-diagnosis.
The tool is probably best used to find reliable patient information leaflets about a condition.
