Medical ServicesWelcome to the LYIT Health Service webpage.  We offer a full general practice service free to all registered students with an emphasis on health promotion, with a daily GP surgery and a full-time nurse.

There are two doctors who cover the weekly surgery - Dr Mary McFadden and Dr David Khavia, and one full-time registered nurse - Hannah Glackin.

All information provided by the doctor or nurse is confidential and is not disclosed to any other person, without the permission of the student concerned.  All records are kept on a separate network to the main system and are not shared. Preventative medicine and screening are also available.
