STUDENT HEALTH CENTRE OPERATIONS DURING COVID 19 PERIOD
NOTICE: Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the health centre is operating on an APPOINTMENT ONLY basis.
To make an appointment - follow the procedure below.
If you have Covid 19 symptoms or have been in contact with a confirmed case of Covid 19, please do not attend campus. Self-isolate and contact your GP or the ITT Health Centre for further advice/referral (during opening hours.) After hours - you should contact South Doc (1850335999.)
A comprehensive medical service is available to students through the Student Health Centre. The Nurse-led Health Centre provides a triage service via telephone, thus enabling appointments to be scheduled directly with the Doctor OR Nurse without significant delays.
The Health Centre is by appointment only, however urgent cases will be seen daily pending an evaluation by the Nurse. A Student may also be asked to attend the health Centre for evaluation prior to seeing GP in order to establish priority with their appointment. A Doctor attends the Student Health Centre on a part-time basis during term-time only.
All students need to register at Health Centre for first time appointments. As part of the registration process, it is recommended that students advise their Head of Department and the Student Health Centre of any medical condition that may affect attendance or academic performance. This information will enable the college to provide support and if appropriate, resources to assist the student during their studies.
The Health Centre is located in both the U-BLOCK, BIT Building (North Campus) and in A124 (South Campus).
How much does a visit cost?
The fee for a general doctors visit is 10 Euro. This may vary depending on the services provided. The nursing service is available to all registered students free of charge. Medical cards are accepted, however students that have a medical card registered with a Doctor in Tralee are required to pay for appointments with the doctor on campus.
