Visiting From Abroad?

Tourist Doctor Galway

The GP is your first point of contact within the Irish health service and is the first person you should see if you have a medical problem while holidaying in Ireland. GPs can resolve 90% of such issues, and can refer you further if the need arises. If the problem is extremely urgent (for example collapse, bad accidents, heart attack, bleeding profusely..) you should call an ambulance (phone 999 or 112) or proceed directly to the Accident and Emergency Department of University Hospital Galway, or the Galway Clinic.

If you have a valid EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) or UK NHS card, you are entitled to free emergency GP care. We also have direct payment arrangements with a small selection of insurance companies for those normally resident abroad. For others, keep your receipt after paying for your medical treatment to claim back later if your insurance allows for this.
