Caring for the people of Drumcondra and the surrounding area since 1982
THE DRUMCONDRA MEDICAL TEAM
Drumcondra Medical is owned and operated by husband and wife team Dr Brian King and Dr Sinéad Cronin. We believe in offering patient centred and efficient care in a welcoming environment.
Our Administrative staff of Loretta, Pam, Maeve and Tia are on hand to help book appointments and answer any queries you may have. They are supported by Cathy, our Practice Manager.
Nurse Jackie is available for a range of services including phlebotomy, smear taking, baby vaccines and administration of Prolia and other injections. She also runs our Chronic Disease Management clinic.
DR BRIAN CHOSEN AS A GP TRAINER
Dr Brian has been selected to become a GP trainer with the RCSI Dublin North Leinster GP training scheme.
This means that Drumcondra Medical has now been accredited to train doctors who have chosen to become General Practitioners.
In July 2023 we will welcome Dr Aine Stenson who is a fully qualified doctor in the final stages of her postgraduate training to become a GP.
NOTICE OF NON-ATTENDANCE FEE
Due to a dramatic increase in patients failing to attend for booked appointments we are introducing a non-attendance fee.
If you fail to attend and do not give us 24 hours notice, a non-attendance fee of 30 euro will be applied to your account. This fee will need to be paid before another appointment will be offered to you.
We are a busy medical practice and always have people waiting for appointments.
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.
