Opening Times

We firmly believe that healthcare must be easily accessible and we have extended our opening times.

All consultations are appointment only. Our standard consultation time is 15 minutes and we aim to keep delays to a minimum. To facilitate this, we would appreciate if you would inform our reception staff on booking your appointment if you feel you need more time during your consultation. This might be as a result of having several issues to discuss or for certain procedures, including full check up, mirena coil insertion, or if you wish to discuss an issue with your nurse or doctor at the time of your smear.

Appointments from:
Monday – Friday 08.00 – 13:00 and 14:00-17.00

While we have a number of doctors at Woodview Family Doctors, we encourage people to attend the same doctor where possible. This facilitates better continuity of care and encourages the development of a professional team to manage your long-term health needs.

The HSE have introduced a free GP care scheme for children under 6 years of age.  We wish to continue to provide the very best medical care for you and your family.  We anticipate that this under 6 scheme will make the surgery busier therefore we cannot guarantee that a routine appointment will be available on the day you telephone.  Unfortunately, this may mean that you have to wait to see your own GP for a routine matter.

There will be same day appointments for acute, urgent medical problems that cannot wait for a routine appointment.  This is to ensure that all acute medical problems can be dealt with in a safe and timely manner.  These urgent appointments will be one patient one medical problem only and may not be with your preferred doctor.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during these uncertain times of change in general practice.
