NOTICE OF NON ATTENDANCE FEE
WE KNOW YOUR TIME IS PRECIOUS, AND SO IS OURS.
Due to a dramatic increase in patients failing to attend for booked appointments we are introducing a non-attendance fee.
You will receive a text reminder the day before your appointment.
If you fail to attend and do not give us 24 hours notice that you will not be attending, a non-attendance fee of €30 will be applied to your account. This fee will need to be paid before another appointment is offered to you.
We are a busy medical practice and always have people waiting for appointments.
We are currently closed to new patients
The practice is currently at capacity. We are unable to accept new patients at this time.
Keep on eye on our website to see if/when this changes.
ARE YOU ELIGIBLE FOR THE FREE CHRONIC DISEASE MANAGEMENT PROGRAMME?
If you are over 50 years of age, have a valid GMS or GP visit card, can attend the surgery and have one or more of the following conditions you are eligible to participate.
~ Type 2 Diabetes
~ Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
~ Heart Failure
~ Irregular heart beat (Atrial fibrillation)
The programme involves a free, structured appointment with the GP and the practice nurse twice a year. Here, we will specifically focus on your chronic conditions. The aim of the programme is to take a more detailed view at you and these specific conditions. This will hopefully result in early detection of a change in your condition, reducing visits to hospital.
