Phone one of our three practices

Sometimes our phone lines are busier than usual, we appreciate your patience as we get to your call.

General practitioner appointments

Patients are encouraged to register with a particular doctor who will primarily care for their health needs. Appointments are available 8:30am to 4:30pm, Monday to Friday. The appointments are 15 minutes in length, with 12 patients seen per session and an hour for paper work being allocated for GP’s per session. 

GP’s are remunerated according to their qualifications and experience. We have between 2 – 4 GPEP’s training at any one time across our three practices.

Urgent care

If it’s an emergency and you or someone else needs immediate medical attention, then ring 111 straight away.

The Carefirst Group urgent care is located at our Westown practice. It is currently open from 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday to Friday.

Patients from all our practices our welcomed to access our urgent care services.

Travel clinic (visitors)

The travel clinic (Westown) provides advice and information for travellers whilst abroad. It is designed as a ‘one stop shop’ for all vaccinations, including yellow fever, and malarial advice.

Cancelling appointments

Please let us know as early as possible if you are not able to keep an appointment so we may offer it to someone else.

If you change your mind about keeping your appointment and fail to let us know, or cancel within an hour of your appointment time, then we will charge you for the appointment.

New patients

Our enrolment capacity is currently limited, please phone or email one of our clinics to discuss availability. Thanks for your understanding.
