Family Care aims to provide a quality primary health care service to individuals, families and groups of people who live or work within the broad catchment area of the practice. While making direct interventions to ensure the physical and psychological health of our patients, we also aim to empower them to make educated and informed decisions regarding their own health. We do this by providing a consultation style that places a premium on the need for clear communication. We embrace a holistic approach to patient care.

We aim to provide a service that is equitable, that caters for public and private patients alike while being conscious of groups with needs within our population. We strive to operate a cost-efficient system of health care delivery, both in terms of charges to patients and the use of public and private resources. We will continue to participate in ongoing medical education through The Irish College of General Practitioners and other professional groups. We support and will participate in the education and training, in the community, of undergraduate student doctors and nurses and postgraduate general practitioners. We will continue to work with public and private health care providers, voluntary and professional organisations and community groups for the general improvement of health care services.

‘Should you require an emergency appointment on the day please phone the surgery before 9.30am to request an emergency appointment.’

Consultations are by appointment only. Please phone (090) 663 44 04 or call into the surgery to book your next appointment. Appointments are often available on the day. However, calling late does not guarantee an appointment. We endeavour to accommodate emergencies and particularly ill children even if the surgery is full. Please do not ‘drop in’ and expect to be seen ‘straight away’. Due to increased demand on our services, longer waiting times may be incurred.

If you need a longer appointment (complex problems/new patients/multiple issues/ mental health issues etc) please mention that when making your booking. Consultations which run significantly over the allotted time will incur the additional charges of an extended consultation. The last consultation time is 4.50pm.
