Coronavirus COVID-19

We understand this is a challenging time and we are ready to deal with any concerns you have regarding Covid-19.  It is important to remember, however, that everyday medical issues continue to occur during this period.  We continue to be available for any medical needs, as well as routine pregnancy care, childhood vaccinations, and urgent blood tests/investigations.  Please telephone the surgery to make these appointments.

As per HSE guidelines DO NOT show up to the practice unannounced.  Together we can help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Patients we understand that this is a very challenging time.  While this is new for you, please understand that this is also new for our staff and GPs.  Your patience is appreciated while we work through this together.

Please ensure you have your RSI (PPS) number for any COVID-19 related queries.

If you cannot get through to the surgery and it is an emergency please call 999 for an urgent ambulance.

We are constantly monitoring the HSE website for updates and will update our website if necessary.

If you are in receipt of  social welfare  payment in relation to an existing illness, then please contact the surgery to request your Social Welfare Certificate in the usual manner and we will arrange to submit same on your behalf electronically.

Under no circumstances should you attend the surgery to request or collect a social welfare cert.

Due to the current pandemic we are not in a position to issue employer sick notes.
