All undergraduate students of RCSI (including GEM and PA students) are entitled to free consultations at Mercer's Medical Centre, provided they hold a valid current student ID and student number.
Consultation fees for visits which take place at Mercer's are covered by RCSI; however students are responsible for charges incurred for all out of hours services, house calls and prescribed medication charges. RCSI students should identify themselves as patients of Mercer's Medical Centre if they contact the out of hours services. Please bring your ID along to every appointment at the medical centre. We are closed on weekends and all bank and public holidays. Out of hours info can be found here>>
To arrange a non-urgent virtual consultation with a clinician, please fill in this form.
If for any reason you no longer need your appointment, please cancel it with as much notice as possible. Failure to cancel means lost clinical time. We are frequently booked out, and patients not attending their appointments without notice causes undue stress on our clinic and on other sick patients. You can easily cancel using this form or by calling us on 014022300.
If you are more than 15 minutes late without notice you may be asked to reschedule.
Students who hold an up to date medical card with another GP should bring their medical cards with them, for prescribing purposes. If you are a student from the United Kingdom or Northern Ireland please bring your National Insurance number (not medical card number). You will be entitled to free consultations and free prescriptions with this number.
It is important to note that while we are affiliated with RCSI, the college does not have access to any part of the clinical notes of any student. We would like to stress that confidentiality is of the utmost importance to us. No notes will be released from Mercer's Medical Centre without the explicit consent of the patient.
