We offer a broad range of women’s health services. For further information on any of the topics below, or if you have a query regarding any other service, please do not hesitate to ask our reception staff.
The Mother and Infant Care Scheme provides an agreed programme of care to all expectant mothers who are ordinarily resident in Ireland. This is a service provided by a family doctor of your choice and a hospital obstetrician. At the clinic, all doctors are pleased to offer this service to our patients. You do not need a medical card.
To avail of this service, the GP will provide you with an application form, which you and your GP should complete together, and which you should then return to your Local Health Office where it will be processed for inclusion in the scheme.
The doctor provides an initial examination, if possible before 12 weeks. A further five ante-natal consultations will be due during the pregnancy (6 if it is your second or subsequent child). These visits are alternated with visits to the maternity unit or hospital. The schedule of visits may be changed by your doctor and/or hospital obstetrician depending on your individual situation.
Where an expectant mother suffers from a significant illness affecting the pregnancy, e.g. diabetes or hypertension, up to five additional visits to the doctor may be provided. Please note that the Mother & Infant Scheme only cover these specific visits about your pregnancy. Visits in respects of other matters (e.g. colds, coughs, illnesses etc.) will be charged as normal.
After the birth, the GP will examine the baby at two weeks, and both mother and baby at 6 week free of charge. All other postnatal visits will be charged as normal. The public health nurse also normally visits the mother and baby at home during the first six weeks. When your baby is two calendar months old, he or she will be due his or her first vaccinations. It is important to bring your baby for vaccination when he or she is due as this offers the best protection against illness.
Children are very special visitors at the clinic, and we have a special set of commitments for children. We always try to make your visit as short and comfortable as possible. We understand that being ill can make you feel tired and upset. If you have a favourite doll or bear, you can bring them along to cheer you up while you are at the clinic.
Please note: Parents must supervise children at all times while at the clinic.
We offer a broad range of men’s health services. For Further information on any of the topics below, or if you have a query regarding any other service, please do not hesitate to ask our reception staff.
