Covid-19 Update


Due to the Covid-19 virus, our usual practice operations have changed.


On the advice of the HSPC we are no longer offering a walk in service. Please contact reception by phone if you need an appointment on 052 6121288


Our reception staff will enquire if you have any respiratory symptoms e.g. cough, fever, or shortness of breath. For those patients who do not have respiratory symptoms and who need essential appointments, in so far as is possible, will be given an appointment time with their usual doctor, this may be over the phone or in the practice. 

In line with HSPC recommendations we are asking everyone attending the practice to wear a face covering or mask. 


Up to date official HSE information can be found here: https://www2.hse.ie/conditions/coronavirus/coronavirus.html

Information for employees requiring work absences due to COVID-19 can be found here: https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/99104a-covid-19-coronavirus


As the situation evolves we will continue follow the expert advice so please check back for any changes. We would like to thank you for your cooperation during these challenging times.

24 hr B.P. monitor

The 24hr b.p. monitor is a service offered to patients following G.P. referral.

The device is collected directly from the Medical Centre and is worn for a period of 24 hours.  Information regarding the device shall be given to you prior to collection.

The device should be left on for the recommended period of time to provide an accurate reading of blood pressure at various times of the day and night.  In doing so, it minimises the risk of inaccurate data being recorded and therefore the risk of unnecessary medication.

What do I do in preparation for the test?

No particular preparation is required in advance for the monitor.  The cuff shall be placed on your upper arm, this is attached to a battery operated monitor.   The monitor shall be placed in a pouch that can be attached to your waist, shoulder or neck.  You should continue your daily activities whilst using the monitor and keep a record of activities carried out and times undertaken.

Showering, etc.

It is important to keep the monitor dry:

Do not shower or take a bath until the monitor is removed.

It is OK to have a sponge bath but avoid getting the monitor wet.

Keeping your diary

It is important to fill in the diary.

Write down any activities that you carry out during this time along with a note of the time that you carry out the activity e.g.

– Stair Climbing

– Exercise class

– Walking

Write down any symptoms that you may have and the time experienced e.g.

– Chest pain or discomfort (if this is severe contact your Doctor)

– Other pain

– Shortness of breath

– Dizziness
