Charges

Please note: Due to Covid all initial consultations are now telephone consultations. If a doctor or nurse feels they need to see you, they will arrange this during the telephone consultation. Students will be asked for a payment at the time of booking as standard. Please have your card details ready.

There is no charge to the student for a Covid telephone consult as the HSE are currently paying for this service, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you are concerned about covid.

 

The Student Health Service does not have a GMS contract therefore cannot facilitate medical cards or EHIC cards. 

Student Health understands that some students may face financial difficulty during their time at UCD. If you are facing difficulty please explore the financial support options in UCD or ask our reception staff for a financial medical assistance form.
