Urgent Appointments

  • We request that you only book one of our urgent slots when you are acutely unwell, in pain or distressed. . 
  • Urgent appointments cover only the urgent item and students may have to book a separate appointment for any other routine issues.
  • We endeavour to see as many students as possible however we may not be able to see everyone who requests a same day appointment.

Routine Appointments

  • Routine appointments are available for any routine or ongoing issues (e.g. long-term prescriptions, medicals etc). 
  • Routine appointments must be booked in advance and at busy times students may have to wait 2 weeks for a routine appointment. Therefore in order to arrange a time that is suitable to you, we recommend phoning at least 10 days in advance. 

 Blood Tests

  • If you would like a blood test, please first book a consultation with the doctor. Should you require a blood test the doctor will then refer you to the nurse to carry out the test. 
  • There is a €15 charge for a blood test.
