Health Issues

I am not feeling well. How do I make an appointment with a doctor?

Phone the College Health Centre on (01) 896 1556/1591.

The Health Centre is open during normal office hours in, and out, of term time. The hours of attendance for students are as follows; 10.30am – 1.30pm, and 2.00pm – 4.40pm. Consultations are normally by prior appointment only. Emergency appointments however are available at 9.30am and 2.00pm and are accommodated through a system of ‘nurse triage’. The College Health Service is currently free to all registered students at Trinity College Dublin. Small fees however are in place for some procedures.

Where can I get advice and/or information on sexual health?

A sexual health clinic is run every Wednesday during term time between 9.30am – 1pm,and from 2.30-4pm at the College Health Centre. Absolute confidentiality is maintained, and no record of attendance at this clinic is recorded in the general notes at the Health Service. The clinic is run by Dr. Niamh Murphy, Dr. Mary Sheridan and two practice nurses.

The student is first counselled, then swabs and blood tests are obtained for all S.T.I's. Some results are available in twenty-four hours, the remaining ones in two weeks. The routine waiting time maybe up to three to four weeks, however symptomatic patients will always be seen immediately. Appointments may be made at reception in the Health Centre or by telephoning (01) 896 1556/1591. Other than a €10 charge for the transport of samples to St. James’ Hospital, the service is free.
