During these worrying times we will be doing our best to respond to your queries as soon as possible however please bear with us as we try manage this unprecedented event.

Of utmost importance is self isolation and social distancing. Please check regularly on your elderly relatives and neighbours.

For any general queries regarding covid 19 please go to the HSE website www.hse.ie or telephone 185024180

Please do not turn up at our premises unannounced. Ring for an appointment and when you arrive either ring or press the doorbell, and you will be informed when we are ready to receive you.

Please only one adult with each child and please leave  children who are not patients at home if possible. This is to minimise the risk of transmission.

 

If you are symptomatic or have had contact with someone with corona virus or have recently returned from a WHO at risk area please contact us and a doctor will return your call as soon as possible to arrange testing. At present testing may take a few days so in the meantime ensure you self isolate. Please have your PPS number or medical card number ready when ringing. If you are not symptomatic or do not meet the above criteria it is not possible at present to refer you for screening.

If you need a routine prescription please post in a written request, the name of your pharmacy and a stamped addressed envelope. Please only ring our telephone for urgent prescriptions. Please do not request GMS prescriptions for paracetamol if you are not symptomatic. They will not be issued if not medically indicated as this takes up too much of our doctors time and leads to stockpiling. You can purchase such over the counter medications if you desire.

Again we appreciate your understanding in what is an extremely busy and stressful time for us all.
