The Student Health Department does not function as a GP service. We are unable to visit you in your home and do not provide a service outside our office-opening hours. If you believe you need to be seen urgently, or at a time when Student Health is closed and unavailable, contact your GP service or out of hours service in your locality for advice and care. Out of hours call our number on (021) 4902311 for further details.
UCC Campus is closed in line with the government directive of 12th of March 2020. During this closure period and over the Summer months, UCC Student Health is operating a restricted service. Where possible consultations and advice are conducted via telephone. If the clinician on duty recommends that a physical examinations is required and that the matter cannot be dealt with through telephone consultation, attendance at a healthcare facility will be arranged and/or advised. This may be at your local COVID-19 HUB, an Accident and Emergency Department, an Outpatient Clinic or in the Student Health Centre. You may also be directed to attend for a COVID-19 test at one of the local COVID-19 testing centres - in Cork this is based in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.
Please do not attend the Student Health Centre, your GP, an Accident and Emergency Dept, a GP Out of Hours Service or COVID HUB or testing Centre without prior arrangement. Telephone your Dr first.
Telephone 4902311 for advice from our Student Health staff. During the Out of hours period, a voice message will advise on sources of help available for students remaining in Cork who are not yet registered with a local General Practitioner.
