If we cannot facilitate you with a Doctor's appointment, the nurse will endeavour to assess every student (through our triage system - available via reception) and prioritise your needs depending on urgency.

Please note:

  • If you are feeling unwell and there are no suitable Doctor's appointments, make an appointment with a nurse who will assess & prioritise your needs. However, if no immediate appointments are available with a nurse please inform the receptionist that it is urgent.
  • Those students requiring Emergency Contraception should make an urgent appointment with the nurse, as this medication needs to be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex. Evidence suggests that it is most effective if taken within 24 hours of unprotected sex. Emergency Contraception is also available in most pharmacies without a prescription.
  • Persons requiring repeat pill prescriptions should give at least 2 days notice.
  • A medical cert will only be issued if the student has attended the student health centre, contacted the health centre at the time of illness or event, or if confirmatory evidence detailing the problem is presented to the student health centre from an appropriate source

Unfortunately, part-time students cannot be seen at the Student Health Centre.

Apprentices and Erasmus students are an exception to this and can be seen at the Student Health Centre.

May we bring to the attention of all staff that the Health Centres are for the use of students only.

Please do not ask the staff at the Medical Health Centre to see a member of staff as the TU Dublin policy does not facilitate staff health care.

There is a specific policy regarding first aid for staff. In an emergency situation, your first point of contact should be the designated first aid officer for your faculty. You may attend your nearest hospital/accident & emergency or General Practitioner.

If your injury is of an occupational nature please report to your local Occupational Health Officer.

We are committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment where students can be confident that best practice is being followed at all times and the safety of everyone is of paramount importance. Students are able to request the presence of a chaperone if required for any intimate examination or if they feel they require the support of another individual during any examination by the Doctor or Nurse.

This chaperone policy adheres to local and national guidelines and policy. This chaperone policy is advertised through notices in our waiting room.

Students are encouraged to ask for a chaperone if required at the time of booking their appointment wherever possible.

All Health Centre staff are aware of and have received appropriate information in relation to this chaperone policy.

All formal chaperones understand their roles and responsibilities and are competent to perform that role.

Doctors and Nurses may, as a matter of course and in line with our policy, invite you or ask you to have a chaperone present during a personal examination.
