Fees

We aim to provide a fair and efficient service for all our patients. To facilitate this, the practice has adopted a policy that all accounts should be settled at the time of your consultation.  We thank all our patients for cooperating with this policy.

 

If you have an outstanding balance, you may receive an SMS message from us with a secure payment link. Patients with outstanding balances are required to pay their balance in full prior to making any further appointments.

 

We accept payment by cash, card or cheque and can take payment online or over the phone on outstanding balances. 

 

You can see an outline of our general fees below, please note that the fee for consultation with the nurse may vary depending on the service being provided. Please enquire at reception if the fee for a particular service is not available below.

All GMS patients who are attending the practice for the first time must provide a valid medical card or doctor visit card to reception. Patients with expired or invalid medical cards or doctor visit cards will be required to pay as per our normal schedule of fees, as only costs incurred while cards are valid are covered by the GMS.

Not Covered By Medical/GP Visit Cards

We are unable to continue to sustain the costs and workload which are not covered as part of the HSE contract – some of which are outlined in the below poster.

 

As a result, there is now a fee of €20.00 for blood tests for all medical card/GP visit card holders to be paid prior to consultation.

 

If you wish to have your blood tests for free in the hospital, please give 24 hours’ notice to collect a blood form from reception.
