How does the GP Medical Post work?

Who and when should you call? 

Monday to Friday
5.00 pm - 8.00 am

Weekends and public holidays
24 hours a day

Outside these opening hours
Please contact your general practitioner.

We want to assist as many patients as possible and be prepared for emergency situations. That's why we plan and make appointments. Please do not come to the GP Medical Post if you have not made an appointment. 

Always call 085 – 53 60 300 first 

You can only call the GP Medical Post for emergency GP care. You should not call if your situation can wait until your GP's next available hours. The GP Medical Post does not issue repeat prescriptions. The GP Medical Post does not provide second opinions on what another GP has said. 

Your call will be taken by a triage nurse (or a doctor's assistant). Triage nurses have extensive medical knowledge and are specially trained to assess whether a person requires urgent medical attention. 

The triage nurse will ask you to provide the following information: 

  • your name, address, telephone number, and date of birth 
  • the name of your own GP 
  • your medical history (if relevant to your visit to the GP Medical Post) 
  • the medication you are currently using 

In emergency situations, we will only ask for the most crucial information, such as your address and telephone number. 

Responses to your call 

  • Your call may be handled in various ways. 
  • The triage nurse may: 
  • give you self-care advice. 
  • book you in for a consultation with the on-duty GP at the GP Medical Post. 
  • arrange for the on-call GP to visit you at your home. 
  • arrange for an ambulance or a visit by the on-call GP as a matter of urgency.
