The University provides a Student Health Service, which is maintained by two campus doctors and supported by nurses and counsellors. The Health Services Unit aims to help you achieve your academic goals by advising and guiding you in all aspects of health - physical, emotional and mental.
The Health Centre offers:
A WALK-IN CLINIC
With free confidential consultation with physicians from 8.30 am to 8.00 pm, Monday to Friday. The clinic also offers a comprehensive range of nursing services: blood pressure, blood sugar and blood cholesterol measurements, vision screening testing, cervical smears, pregnancy tests, contraceptive advice, vaccinations, wound care and bandaging, ear syringing, general advice and support.
These include a nutrition & weight management clinic and a sexual health clinic.
Providing prescription and over the counter items at reduced costs
We understand that starting your new life as a university student can bring its fair share of worries and concerns. To help you cope with personal, social, or emotional concerns, UWI offers a free, confidential and professional counselling service. Trained counsellors are available to talk with students, in confidence, about anything. Talking about your anxieties with a counsellor may help you to get a new perspective on the problem and possible solutions, or simply make you feel better by airing your feelings. For academic advice, and issues relating to time management, exam stress and study skills there is an Academic Advising and Disability Liaison Unit, which also offers free and confidential advice and support.
after hours care and emergency services
Extended medical services are available and emergency services can also be accessed after clinic hours at any one of UWI’s preferred private medical facilities.
All full-time registered student have access to the Student Health Plan. If you have paid full-time fees for the semester you are automatically covered.
