If you need urgent medical care that is outside the opening hours of the surgery, there are a few options.
Luke doc is a service provided by local GPs who have come together to cover the out of hours service. your notes from the session are usually sent to your regular GP, after your consultation. If you intend to use a medical cad or doctor visit card to cover the visit, this must be presented at the time of the visit. Consultations are €70. You should always ring the service before attending. This is a very busy service and should only be used for issues that cannot wait until your regular GP is free. Luke Doc can do referrals for covid tests if needed, please have your PPS number to hand.
