Specialist clinical services

Student Health offers a number of different specialist services. We can arrange appointments on campus, or point you in the right direction.

All specialist appointments are by referral only. This means that you'll need to see a doctor before you are referred on to a specialist. This excludes services such as physiotherapy, optometry and dentistry—you can book in directly to see these professionals.

Specialists at Student Health

You can see the following specialists at Student Health, at either Kelburn or Pipitea campus:

  • Dermatologist—skin specialist
  • Dietician—free nutritional advice offered by postgraduate dietician students
  • Endocrinologist—diabetes specialist
  • Psychiatrist

Higher charges may apply. See our pricing schedule for further information.

Radiology

Student Health make referrals to any local radiology providers. Please discuss your options with your clinician.

Physiotherapy

The Physio Spot runs student clinics on the Kelburn campus and at two other locations in Wellington.

This service is not run by Student Health—you'll need to call 0800 842 749 to book, or book an appointment online.

Optometry

Student Health does not offer appointments with optometrists—however, we do recommend contacting Specsavers or Matthews Eyewear, as these clinics offer student discounts.

Dentistry

Dentistry appointments are likewise not offered at Student Health. If you're in need of a dentist, you'll need to arrange this outside of our service. Victoria University of Wellington students receive discounted rates at Capital Dental and Symes de Silva & Associates.
