How do I make an appointment?
Please contact our Limerick Doctors by phone on 061-312291 to arrange an appointment. A member of staff will take your details and may ask you a few simple questions in order to triage your call. You may also request an appointment by filling out our appointment request form:
Can more than one person attend for the appointment?
How long are the appointments?
Appointments are booked in 15-minute slots. However, if you think you need longer time with the doctor, please mention it when you are making your appointment and we could book a longer duration.
What happens if I need to cancel my appointment?
If you need to cancel, or are unable to make your appointment for any reason, please contact the surgery as soon as possible. The surgery is very busy and usually fully booked and if a patient does not attend without notifying us, the appointment slot is wasted and could have been used by another patient.
How do I order my prescription?
If you need to order a repeat prescription, you can do this by phoning the surgery to place an order for the medication you require or you may drop in a list of the medication you require. You may also request your repeat prescription by filling out the repeat prescription request form
A minimum of 24 hours notice is needed for all repeat prescriptions to be prepared. This allows the doctor time to check the prescription and ensure your records are updated accordingly. The doctor should see all patients on long-term medication regularly. You may be requested to make an appointment with the doctor prior to getting a repeat prescription if you have not been reviewed for a period of time.
How do I get my test results?
