Services

Information on the Health services available on each DCU campus are included in the tabs below.

DCU Glasnevin Campus

THE FIRST POINT OF CALL IS THE NURSE

The Nurse provides a 'drop-in' facility, to discuss health problems and receive treatment where appropriate.

The Nurses operate a daily triage clinic and appointment clinics for various consultations during opening hours. 

Services available at the Student Health Centre:

Nurse/Doctor Consultations 

Student may book a one-one consultation with a health care professional for health advice. Students that 'walk in' with illness are assessed/triaged by the nurse and referred to the doctor if necessary.  

Medical Referrals can be made on request or where deemed appropriate by a Counsellor or other relevant person. Sports injury referrals, hospital referrals.

 Phlebotomy (blood tests)

We run a clinic to carry out routine blood tests once a week for a nominal fee of 10 Euros. All bloods must be requested by a GP.  We can facilitate bloods requested by other General Practitioners by pre-arrangement. 

 Dressing Clinic/Ear Irrigation

This clinic offers wound care and assessment of accidents. We can also care for wound post surgery by pre-arrangement with individual consultations or general practitioners. E.g. pilonidial sinus, suture removal 

Students need to pre-book an appointment with the Nurse for ear irrigation. This may be needed if ear drops do not work. Irrigating the ear with water will usually clear plugs of earwax.

 StI Screening 

We run a clinic to advise students on common sexually transmitted infections. Students can book in to have a full Sti check which involves one doctor consultation followed by an appointment with the nurse. This appointment involves bloods(HIV,Hepatiits,Syphilis) and a swab for the females (Chlyamdia and gonorrhea) and a urine sample for the males (Chlyamdia and gonorrhea). 

 Hepatitis B Vaccination Clinic

This clinic is offered to students within the Faculty of Sports Science and Health.  The Hepatitis B vaccine is recommended for anyone who is exposed to blood or other potentially infectious body fluids. The Hepatitis B vaccination is a series of three shots given over a 6-month period.  The second shot is administered 1 month after the first dose.  The third shot is given 6 months after the first.

 Contraception/Family Planning 

Students can pre-book the Nurse to discuss contraception/family planning issues. We encourage students to attend for unplanned pregnancy advice and assistance.  We offer a weekly repeat pill prescription clinic. Students need to allow one week notice for booking any appointments for routine repeat prescriptions.

 Advice and Support on any Health or Personal Matter 

The nurse can offer advice on any personal, social issues or just provide a listening ear to any student having difficulties throughout their academic year.

Students may attend us to get help on their eating habits, learn about healthy eating and maintaining dietary changes. Body mass index or BMI maybe carried out.
