Payment & consultations
Fees for Service
There is a cost for all professional services rendered. The current rates are available from the Student Wellness Service reception. Students providing proof that they receive a financial aid package from UCT do not pay to see a medical practitioner when referred by a nurse, but they are still responsible for paying for medication dispensed and for certain tests and procedures. Medical treatment will still be provided if a student is unable to pay and in these instances the fee will be added to your student account. Should you require a referral to a private specialist or medical practitioner, it is your responsibility to pay for the services provided by that professional person or organisation. HIV testing, STI medication and basic contraceptives are free of charge.
Consultations are strictly by appointment. Please make an online booking via the UCT mobile APP, by clicking on this link, or scheduling in person at reception. Should you struggle with booking online you can call 021 650 1020 for assistance. Email bookings are not offered. Emergencies will be assessed by a practitioner and referred appropriately.
