As a Healthcare facility, mask wearing remains mandatory in Abbey House Medical Centre.
The doctors and nurses of Abbey House Medical Centre are still here for you during the Covid-19 Emergency.
Please do not delay seeking help for medical problems during this time. Prompt action can avoid minor problems progressing to something more serious and difficult to treat.
We have taken precautions in the surgery to keep patients and staff safe and to minimise the risk of infection at this time.
As well as phone appointments, we are now open for face to face consultations: if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Respiratory Symptoms
- Sore Throat
- High Temperature
You must provide a negative antigen test when attending the GP.
If you have tested Positive for Covid-19 please do not attend the surgery in person. Please refer to the HSE website for updated information.
Second Booster Dose
If you are 65 years or older or under 65 and Immunocompromised.
You can now book your Second Booster appointment in Abbey House using the following link.
Your second booster should be your Fourth Vaccine.
New dates are being added all the time so please check again in the future if the current clinic dates are not suitable.
Given the current level of Covid-19 in the community please do not attend if you have any symptoms suggestive of infection.
There are currently almost daily changes to the advice regarding the Covid-19 Vaccination and understandably we are receiving a high volume of calls as a result.
Please do not call the surgery regarding Vaccine queries to allow as little disruption to regular services as possible.
We appreciate some patients prefer to see their specific GP & we will always try to facilitate this when possible. But if your GP is fully booked we will offer you another doctor that is available.
We cannot double book you in, we do this as the GP has reached their Max number of Patients that is deemed safe to consult within a day and it would be unsafe to double book a patient in when the Max Capacity is reached, this also would add to that GPs already heavy workload.
Other Doctors will be able to help you while your GP is not available and we thank you for your understanding.
North East Doctor on Call is urgent out of hours GP Service
CALL (Freephone) 1800 777 911
MONDAY TO FRIDAY 6 pm – 8 am
WEEKENDS AND BANK HOLIDAYS – 24 HOURS
NEDOC is a partnership between the General Practitioners in the North East region and the Health Service Executive.
When you ring 1800 777 911 your call will be answered by specially trained personnel who will ask for your details including, name, address, date of birth, telephone number, symptoms of illness/complaint, own GP’s name and medical card details (where applicable).
This information will be given to the doctor who will return your call and advise on the most appropriate course of action. In most cases one of the following courses of action will be followed:
- immediate medical advice over the telephone
- a visit to a treatment centre for further examination by a doctor
- where the doctor determines the need, a patient may be visited in their own home.
There are 4 GP treatment centres – Cavan, Navan, Castleblaney and Drogheda. Each centre is fully equipped to meet the needs of the patients and is staffed with Doctors, Nurses and Receptionists.
Details of your consultation will be automatically forwarded to your own GP the following working day.
NEDOC is not a walk-in service and all patients must phone NEDOC to see if an appointment is necessary. Patients with appointments are given full priority, those attending without first contacting the centre by phone can expect an increased waiting time.
- Prescription requests can be made online through our website.
- The prescription will be forwarded to the pharmacy of your choice. Please nominate the pharmacy of your choice when applying for your prescription.
- There is a fee of €15 for all private repeat prescription requests.
