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.

Flu Vaccine 2023

Flu vaccines will be available at the surgery from Wednesday 20th September 2023. See the HSE website for more information. You can book your appointment by phoning the surgery.

GP Visit Scheme For Children Under Eight

Gorey Family Practice is participating in the GP Visit scheme for children under the age of eight. 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.

If your child does not hold an under-eight medical card, you remain liable for the costs of medical care until the registration process is complete. You do not need to register for a new GP visit card if your child was under 6 on the 1st July 2023 as their old card will automatically be extended until they are 8 years of age. A new application is required for children who turned 6 before this date. More information is available from the HSE website.

Changes to repeat prescription requests

We have changed how we deal with prescription requests. You no longer have to send in a paper request or come to the surgery to collect your regular prescription. Patients on long-term medication can now request their repeat prescription directly from this website. When you have sent the request to us we will prepare the prescription and send that to the pharmacy of your choice. You will only need to come to the surgery if you require tests or if you need an examination to check on your condition. Please allow 5 working days before contacting your pharmacy to arrange collection/delivery of your requested medication. Click here to use this service.

*Please note that for private patients there is a €25 charge for repeat prescriptions.

COVID Vaccinations

The Covid vaccine is available at the surgery for the initial immunisation course and for any subsequent boosters. These are made available according to the HSE guidance for this. You can check whether you are eligible for a vaccination by visiting https://www2.hse.ie/screening-and-vaccinations/covid-19-vaccine/get-the-vaccine/covid-19-vaccine-booster-dose/

Anyone aged 12 years or more can get the COVID vaccination with us. You can get the flu vaccine at the same time, if indicated..

In order to get your COVID Booster with us you please bring your COVID Digital Cert so that we can check the date of your previous dose and make sure that you get your booster at the correct time.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

My child has been been told to isolate/restrict movement by the HSE or our GP – please click here to read the most up-to-date advice from the HSE website.

I am a close contact of a confirmed positive case –  please click here to read the most up-to-date advice from the HSE website.

I got a text from you about being “at risk” – our computer system has identified some people as being at higher risk of complications from COVID-19. The system is not perfect so please check the groups below (Advice for groups at higher risk) and see if you fit any of them. If you are unsure please phone us.

Changes at Gorey Family Practice – The practice has expanded its accommodation at Gorey Shopping Centre. This will help to avoid crowding and so reduce the risks from COVID-19.

Changes to how we book appointments – All patients will need to have a telephone consultation with a doctor or nurse before they come to the surgery. This is to manage the risk of COVID-19 for patients and staff.

Vaccines – These will be very important. Ensure that your child gets their routine vaccinations on time. Everyone should consider getting the annual flu vaccine which will be available from September.

Government advice may change from time to time – Please keep up to date: https://www2.hse.ie/coronavirus/
