We are experiencing a high volume of viral respiratory illness at present. Many of these illnesses do not need treatment and will get better themselves. Please take a look at the HSE website www.undertheweather.ie.

We have limited appointments, and we need to prioritise seriously ill patients. We will not be able to accommodate everyone and you may be advised to attend the out-of-hours service EDOC https:www.edoc.ie

We ask for your patience at this very busy time.

Thank you
