We Welcome a nurse  as increasingly the burden of care is in general practice. blood tests are now  5 weeks in Tallaght hospital . Under 6 free health care is a relief for parents struggling to save for mortgages but please visit under the the weather.ie, before attending  with a runny viral infection or chicken pox , or gastroenteritus . A great web site is www.patient.co.uk for all medical queries 

Practice policy per UK guidelines is no antibiotic unless your child is ill for 4 days with fever unless under 3 months , contact hospital of birth or got to Aand E , you the parent  seek advice if your child is simply not eating or drinking for 36 hours . The under has 6  led to a large demand on GPs in area and then those older in need cannot access services. Most parents are working and sensible, there is a new trend for creches to call parents to bring  their loved one to GP for a  sticky eye on day one. which we will rarely treat. This is a new pattern and is taking time away from those in need and parents leaving work to collect their child 

 .

WHEN BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT:

The secretary may ask you "in confidence", what you are coming to see the GP about, it is to allow enough time for the GP to see you. 

Please remember that the morning surgeries are for ACUTE EMERGENCIES, and are very quick appointments, and the afternoons are longer appointments, where the GP has more time to spend with you.

There is no funding for the demand , a minimal  yearly fee,  That does not mean if your child is very young and dehydrated we must know and a new born must seek medical advice in surgery or out of hours  after 5.30 pm tel 1890202224 up 9pm at local out of hours GP Co OP in Tallaght Hospital ,  or  and accident and emergency after 9.30pm if very unwell

  • Let's Talk Diabetes

    Let's Talk Diabetes

    DIABETES MELLITUS IS A LIFELONG CONDITION CAUSED BY A LACK, OR INSUFFICIENCY OF INSULIN. Insulin is a hormone — a substance of vital importance that is made by your pancreas. Insulin acts like a key to open the doors into your cells, letting sugar (glucose) in. In diabetes, the pancreas makes too little insulin to enable all the sugar in your blood to get into your muscle and other cells to produce energy. If sugar can’t get into the cells to be used, it builds up in the bloodstream. Therefore, diabetes is characterised by high blood sugar levels. Excess sugar is also excreted in the urine.
