The student Health Service provides on-campus medical care to full time registered students and Apprentices in the Institute in a confidential, professional and courteous manner.
All full time students and Apprentices have access to the Health Unit free of charge.
The Student Health Unit operates a walk in clinic where students are allocated a time to be seen on a “First come First Served” basis. Our Triage nurses will provide an initial assessment and referral into the doctor if necessary.
Please note, The Health Unit is not a replacement for a students own General Practitioner ( G.P.). The services provided are as follows:
