COVID 19 AND OUR PRACTICE!
We are still open for consultation but things have changed!
Patients of the practice and people with no GP can consult us concerning COVID 19. There is no fee payable by the patient.
If you have any respiratory symptoms : for example cough or fever or sore throat or headcold type symptoms or breathing difficulties or fatigue or muscle pains, it may mean you have COVID 19!
Please call us for advice and we will refer for testing if appropriate.
Anyone with any of the above symptoms should immediately self-isolate while awaiting GP contact. For exact description of what this entails, please see tab " COVID and You "
Please confirm we have the correct number on file when you call.
Please have your phone charged and able to accept a call from a "number blocked" source.
Antenatal patients and baby vaccines will continue to be offered only by appointment and after being asked screening health questions.
We have developed a facility for online private certs and also Department of Social Protection certification.
We can securely email prescription to your pharmacy! Please allow 72 hours when ordering repeat prescriptions.
Please observe hand hygiene, social distancing and stay safe as we together go through these difficult times for healthcare delivery.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in the knowledge that these measures are being put in place in the interest of patient and staff health.
Please check our website daily for updates!
