Visits to the Student Health Doctor and Nurse are usually free but there are charges for some of the services offered. The fees for appointments for Physiotherapy and STI services are payable in advance, on booking the appointment. These fees are non-refundable in the event that you do not attend, and can not be used to pay for a future appointment. A refund may apply if you cancel your appointment at least 1 day in advance of the appointment.

Fees are payable in Cash or by Debit/Credit Card or by  Cheque/Bank Draft.

Medical Cards

Only about 10% of the student body is entitled to a medical card (GMS). The Student Health Department is not a Medical Card Practice. All medical card holders should register with a Cork based GMS doctor. If you hold a medical card and attend the student health department, medication prescribed by the doctor will not be on a GMS prescription and you will be charged the full amount on presentation of that prescription to the pharmacist.

A Medical Card entitles the holder to free consultation and in certain circumstances to free prescriptions and free hospitilisation. Students are not entitled to a Medical Card unless their parents have such a card, but mature students i.e. over 24 years of age may be entitled to a card in their own right depending on income.

To apply for a Medical Card and to check eligibility please visit http://www.hse.ie/eng/services/list/1/schemes/mc/
