Walk-in and be Screened
Between December 4th and December 20th 2019 UCC Student Health Department is endeavouring to offer free STI screens for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea on a walk-in no appointment needed, sit-and-wait basis.
Our offices are open between 9:15- 12:15 and 2:15 - 4:00 pm.
If the Department is very busy you may be asked to return at another time and we appreciate your understanding in this.
Just as with other aspects of your health, your sexual health is very important.
University years may be a time of transition and change, and for some this means becoming sexually active with a partner for the first time, or a change in sexual partner(s). It may also be a time of self-discovery and uncertainty about your sexual orientation.
If you are concerned about any aspect of your sexual health the Student Health Department can help.
We have a dedicated team with considerable experience built up over the years of helping people deal with sexual issues. You can see one of our Female Doctors or one of our Male Doctors to discuss your concerns.
Sexually Transmitted Infections
With the support of the UCC Students' Union, the Department now offers free screening for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea, which can be tested on a single sample of urine in a male, or on a self-administered swab taken by females.
The screening service is intended for those who do not have any symptoms.
If you have symptoms that you think may be caused by an STI, it is recommended that you be examined physically as wells as having blood, urine and swab tests, which is undertaken ot our STI clinic, weekly on Friday mornngs.
If you do have symptoms or noticed a change that is concerning you, please book an appointment for our STI clinic.
You should also consider attending if you have had sexual activty with a partner who has an STI.
