The island is serviced by a full time doctor and nurse. There is a health centre on the island where students can receive professional medical attention Monday to Friday. In the case of emergencies the island is served with a lifeboat, which can take a patient to the mainland in less than three minutes. Medical bills are the responsibility of parents/guardians. Parents/guardians should advise the Coláiste authorities of any medical conditions (Asthma, Allergies etc.) which students may suffer from.
