Welcome to Gorey Family Practice.
Gorey Family Practice is a General Practice (GP) Surgery. We provide general medical care, women’s health and maternity services, childhood and travel immunisations, pre-employment health checks and well person (well man / well woman) health checks. You can see the nurse or the doctor to discuss contraception and family planning. We also perform minor surgical procedures and work with the local health service to arrange investigation and treatment where required.
The branch surgery at Coolgreany (not main surgery in Gorey) is moving on 11/12/2017 to No. 4 Knockgreany, Coolgreany beside The Hair Cabin.
Meningitis B Jan 2019
Meningitis B has recently been discussed in the media. Children in particular should be vaccinated. The number of doses depends on the child’s age.
Those born after October 2016, will have the vaccine included in the childhood immunisation schedule and should receive 3 doses. Please ensure your child’s vaccinations are up to date.
Older children who have not had the vaccine as part of the immunisation programme should have 2 doses.
It is important to have the correct number of vaccines. Ensure that the child completes the course of three vaccine doses if receiving the vaccine as part of the immunisation programme since October 2016.
Further information is available from the National Immunisation Office.
If you wish to have the vaccine for someone born before Oct 2016, there is, unfortunately a charge of €145.00 per vaccine dose. This is because the cost of the vaccine is not covered by the state for those born before Oct 2016. We have supplies of the vaccine in stock.
GP Visit Scheme For Children Under Six
Gorey Family Practice is participating in the GP Visit scheme for children under the age of six. As a parent or guardian you must register your child online, or download the form and send it to the listed address. The website address is www.pcrsonline.ie/portal/free-gp-care-web/pub The scheme formally began on 1 July 2015. If your child does not hold an under-six medical card, you remain liable for the costs of medical care until the registration process is complete.
