Charges for Services at the Student Health Centre

The University levies charges to students for all services in the Student Health Centre with the exception of consultations with the Psychiatrist. The charges vary depending on the service provided and the charges vary from time to time and upon instruction from the University.

Full details of these charges are displayed on internal UL Notice Boards. A summary of the charges are listed in the table below:-

Doctor Consultation Psychiatrist Consultation Physiotherapist Consultation Contraceptive  Clinic





Nurse Consultation Blood Test STI Clinic Pregnancy Test
€10 €10* €30 €15

* Students must have a consultation with one of the doctors (€25) at the Student Health Centre before blood tests (€10) can be performed.

NB! A €5 fee will apply for students who do not attend their appointment and who do not give advance notification to the Student Health Centre that they will not be able to attend.

  • Payment must be made by either cash, debit or credit card.

  • Payment must be made prior to actual consultation at the Student Health Centre Reception.  Consultation or service will not be provided without payment being made first.

  • Only in an emergency case will another method of payment be deemed (by the clinician) to be acceptable.  Where possible, it would be necessary for this to be agreed prior to a service being provided.

  • Visiting students i.e. incoming EU students (domicile or home address not in Ireland) will pay for medical services.  The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) covers emergency and accident cover around travel purposes only. 

  • Students with medical cards must pay for services at the Student Health Centre. Students (local) with medical cards are advised to visit their own GP. Students (non-local) with medical cards are advised to register with a local GP.

Medical Certificates/Sick Notes

Medical Certificates/Sick Notes can be issued by one of the GPs at the Student Health Centre.  However, Medical Certificates can only be issued when the patient is seen by the GP at the time they are ill.  It is not possible to issue retrospective Medical Certificates for dates in the past.

Please note that all University of Limerick students were and are still required to register with a local GP provider.  The Student Health Centre is not a GP service (nor does it have a GMS scheme).
