Can I attend as normal....

If you need us, we are here

Don't feel that you need to stay away from us for Non-Covid19 related visits.

Our doors are locked to protect against spread of Covid-19, but we are still open from 0830 until 1700 and here for you.

We have moved most of our consultations to phone or video and you can book using the normal channels for these. Our normal fees apply and we can take payment over the phone for everything with receipts by email.

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered by phone and sent securely directly to whichever pharmacy suits you.

Covid19 aside, the problems which we normally deal with day in day out have not gone away and we are concerned that some people think they need to stay away altogether.

Our GP's are busier with covid-related queries, but quieter regarding other issues.

For example, this is proving to be a very stressful time and it is more important than ever to look after your mental health. This sort of consult is ideally suited to being dealt with by phone and if scripts are required we can send those directly to your pharmacist for you.

If necessary, we can organise a physical examination following the phone/video consult. However, in most cases, we know the diagnosis by the time we have finished listening and asking focused questions.

We also have access to video consults with the Galway Bay Physio team.

So please don't be afraid to contact us.

You may need to be patient as the booked times for phone or video consults can be unpredictable depending on how the day is going, but we will get to you and we can help.

We really appreciate everyone's support at this time.

    As GP's, we know very little of what happens after we refer you for the test except what we hear anecdotally.

    What we DO know....
