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.
If attending the clinic, ALWAYS WEAR A MASK!
We are in the process of developing online private certs and Dept. of Social Protection certification together with prescription ordering in the coming couple of days.
If ordering a prescription, please tell us your pharmacy and also please telephone your pharmacy as many of them have agreed to collect prescriptions from us within 72 hours of your contacting us!
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.
