DkIT Health Unit

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:

Day to day/On the day illness:

  • Minor Illness: e.g. cough and colds, chest infection, gastro-enteritis, urinary tract infection…
  • Recent/New Injuries: minor injuries, burns, dressings ect…
  • Sexual Health: e.g. advice in relation to contraception, and S.T.I. prevention.
  • Mental wellbeing: students can attend the Institute doctor for advice re. recent exam stress, referral to counsellor etc…

For students who have ongoing illness or chronic conditions they must see their own Doctor.
