Please note: Due to Covid all initial consultations are now telephone consultations. If a nurse feels they need to see you, they will arrange this during the telephone consultation.

During this time, we may not be able to offer our some of our routine services. Please contact reception with any queries.

Blood Tests

  • Students who require a blood test can book this appointment with the nurse.
  • Blood tests can be done at Student Health in the morning time only. 
  • Please note: you cannot attend the nurse for blood tests without a referral from the doctor at Student Health.


STI Tests



  • Students who require a dressing can book a general consultation with the nurse.

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.

Stitches Removal

  • A student can book an appointment with the nurse if they need stitches removed.
  • Please note: we cannot facilitate the removal of metal stitches. 


  • Students who require elective forms to be signed should book an initial consultation with the nurse.
  • 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.
  • Please note: the charges for elective appointments vary depending on what is required.
