I would like to make a nurse appointment

To book a appointment with the nurse please phone 01 716 3134. Please mention what type of appointment you require at time of booking. 

Appointments with a nurse must be booked in advance.  Further charges will apply for specialised appointments & tests.

Students can attend a nurse at UCD Student Health Service for the following:

Blood Tests

To book a appointment for a blood test with a nurse in the UCD Student Health Service, you will first need a referral from a doctor at UCD Student Health Service.   Blood tests can be done at UCD Student Health Service in the morning time only.

We can also assist you in having blood tests done when ordered by doctors and consultants outside of UCD Student Health Service. An initial telephone consultation will be necessary with one of our doctors.  The blood test result will then be reviewed by one of our doctors before being forwarded to you You are responsible for forwarding the result to your external doctor.


Your first prescription for contraception must be issued by a doctor in UCD Student Health Service.
Follow up consultations for renewal of prescriptions may be made with the nurse.

Students who require a dressing can book a general consultation with the nurse. Please mention the type of appointment you require at time of booking. 

Ear Syringe

Students seeking an ear syringe appointment should first book a consultation with the doctor.
With referral from the doctor, students who require an ear syringe appointment can do so with the nurse.
In order for this appointment to take place the student must be using ear drops to soften the wax for at least 5 days prior to the appointment. Ear drops can be purchased at a pharmacy. Please ask a pharmacist for advice.

Nurse on Call

Medical students who require blood tests for nurse on call can book a morning appointment with the nurse. Please mention the type of appointment you require at time of booking 

Sutures Removal

A student can book an appointment with the nurse if they need sutures removed. We are unable to facilitate the removal of metal stitches at Student Health Service.   Please mention the type of appointment you require at time of booking.


Students who require elective forms to be signed should book an initial telephone triage consultation with the nurse to decide if we can facilitate them (there is no charge for this)

Some electives require more than one appointment and therefore students need to book well in advance in order to allow enough time for the elective to be carried out.

  • Some electives may also require a follow up consultation with the doctor.
  • Charges for elective appointments vary depending on what is required.

Please mention the type of appointment you require at time of booking
