The offer is free for all students who have paid semester fees to SiS. If you do not show up at your scheduled appointment, or cancel later than 24 hours before, you will be occupying time that could be spent on other students. You will therefore be charged for late cancellation or if you don’t show up.

Our student nurse can give you advice, guidance, tests for STDs, free pregnancy tests, free prescriptions for birth control and information about getting a new GP.
