Otago Polytechnic Student Health
Primary Healthcare Service
GP practice - enrolled patients only
This practice provides COVID-19 testing to enrolled patients. Please call the practice for more information.
Over the summer break students should contact their own GP or call 0800 847 8719 for Covid testing.
Conveniently located on our Dunedin Campus, the Student Health Centre provides the same services offered by your family doctor.
Our team is made up of 3 part time GPs (see details below under “General Practitioners”) and:
Practice Manager, one nurse and one receptionist.
For students who have paid the Student Health Levy as part of their fees, the cost for a consultation is $15, or is free if you have a current Community Services card. If you have not been charged the Student Health Levy (for example distance students), the service is still available but at a higher rate - please enquire for further details.
