Surgery Appointments

To make our service more efficient we encourage all of our patients to make an appointment with a doctor or nurse.  This can be arranged with our reception in person or by phone; lines are open between 8.30am-6.00pm (5pm on a Friday).

If the problem is urgent please contact reception and we will do our best to assist you.

We have an opt-out automatic text messaging service which we use to remind patients about their upcoming appointments, and other communications. If you do not wish to receive text messages from us, please inform Reception. 

While you are free to attend any of the doctors in the practice, it is often best to follow illnesses through with the same doctor, where possible.  If the doctor of choice is not available you may see one of the other doctors or wait until your own doctor is available.

Medical card Patients need to be formally registered with the practice before they can attend.

Private patients need to be registered here before certain services can be accessed. Please contact us for more information. 

NEW private patients will be asked for their credit/debit card details to hold the appointment. If the appointment is missed without notice, your card will be charged €30.

If you cannot attend your consultation, please let us know as soon as possible as another patient may be able to avail of the appointment. 

HOME VISITS

Wherever possible we encourage patients to attend the surgery as most likely you will be seen faster than waiting at home and with more medical equipment and medication to hand for use if necessary.

If, however, you cannot attend the practice and need a doctor to call to your home, a visit may be arranged by phoning our reception before 10am and outlining the problem so that details can be passed on to the medical staff.

In the event that a house call cannot be attended to by one of our doctors an outside agency of doctors (Doctor on Duty) will be sent.
