The Sheehan Medical Practice is determined to provide best care to all of our patients. An important part of this is being seen promptly for appropriate illnesses. Participating in the free care for all children under 6 years, increases demand for appointments. We wish to have same day access for all patients, who may suffer by not receiving medical attention within 24hours.
To help achieve this quality of care goal, the practice has introduced a new under 12 Rapid Access Clinic for children who are sick with a possible infection. Examples include children with new onset fever, coughing, Ear-Nose and Throat symptoms. We will provide this rapid access service each morning. Our nurse prescriber Ms. Noelle Collingwood and one of our team of doctors will attend to these children.
As this is clinic for sick children, it will only be possible to deal with the current illness for the child alone.
The charge for this clinic will be reduced to 55 euro. You will be eligible for the usual reimbursements from your private health care insurer. Children with under 6 General Medical Service (GMS) Doctor Visit Cards, registered with Dr.McShane, will not be charged.
