Covid-19 and Kildare Medical Centre
The doctors and nurses of Kildare Medical Centre are here for you during the Covid19 Emergency.
Please do not delay in seeking help for medical problems during this time.
We have made some changes in the surgery to keep patients and staff safe.
We no longer can accept walk-in appointments, we will only see patients with a prearranged appointment. Call 045-521361 during working hours to arrange an appointment. Please be advised phone lines will be busy due to the high volume of phone traffic at present. We apologise for delays. If you have a medical emergency between 1pm & 2pm or 5pm & 6pm please call the surgery emergency mobile on 085-878 9003 or 999.
The secretary will ask you a series of questions to triage over the phone. This is essential for the surgery to give you the most appropriate care. A fee of €30 applies for phone consultations with a GP or nurse. If a physical examination is required, we ask you to attend the surgery at your appointment time and we recommend you wear a facial covering, non-medical masks, bandannas, scarves and cloth can be used and sterilise your hands before entering. Please wear practical clothing so that the examination will be easier and faster to minimise infection risk. We ask that you minimise contact with others before your appointment, e.g. come straight from home rather than shopping first and attend your appointment. Please attend on your own unless you require a carer or if a patient is under 16. We can only have a limited the number of people in the waiting room so you may be asked to wait in your car until the doctor or nurse calls you. This is to ensure we adhere to strict social distancing measures. We also ask that you pay by card where possible.
We ask that prescription requests be emailed in to firstname.lastname@example.org or through our website www.kildaremedicalcentre.com, you will receive a reply email so you will know we have received your prescription. We cannot accept requests over the phone. There is a fee of €20 for all private repeat prescriptions.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
