PLEASE WEAR A FACE MASK WHEN YOU ATTEND THE SURGERY.
We are limiting the numbers of patients in the waiting room to reduce risks. If it gets busy, you may be asked to wait in the car and we will call you when we are ready to see you. We are asking all patients to wear face masks when attending to reduce risk of transmission. If you have any respiratory symptoms or suspect you have COVID symptoms, please speak to the doctor before attending.

COVID-19 is spreading fast, If you have a temperature and respiratory symptoms, we need to assume it is COVID-19. The most important thing is to self isolate and stay away from at risk groups (elderly and those with underlying heart and lung diseases,diabetes and those who are immunosuppressed) Remember children can be asymptomatic and still spread the virus. Testing has been introduced but we may not be able to test everyone. We will refer for testing those who are more unwell and those more at risk

Our phones are extremely busy. Please email us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and include your name, date of birth and address. We will get back to everyone but please be patient. Please specify if it is urgent and you are very unwell.

Please use trusted sources like the HSE or WHO to get your information.

BABY VACCINATIONS ARE CONTINUING AS NORMAL
Please be sure not to miss your appointment for baby vaccinations. Babies are more at risk of meningitis and other diseases than corona virus. If vaccination levels fall , we risk a measles or other outbreak. The waiting room is empty and when you attend , you will be seen quickly or advised to return to your car until the nurse is ready. After vaccination, you will be advised to stay in your car for 10 minutes to ensure your baby has no reaction. If this pandemic reminds us of one thing, it is the huge protection that vaccination has given us to deadly diseases.
To minimise attendances, we are carrying out 6 weeks checks on the same day as the 2 month vaccines. We are available for telephone consultations and can try and resolve issues by phone where possible.
