Fees & Insurance

Waiting Room

We are happy to treat anybody who requires medical assistance, whether you are a private patient or hold a medical card or doctor visit card. We are also happy to see people who have recently moved to Galway or are here on a temporary basis. Visitors from the EU who hold a valid European Health Insurance Card do not have to pay for emergency GP visits during their stay.

Please note, if you have a medical card registered with another GP then the terms of use of your Medical Card require that you attend this doctor. However if you are away from home or need emergency medical assistance we can treat you. All GMS/DVC or EHIC cards must be valid and presented on arrival.

If you are unsure whether you are eligible for a medical card, please check www.medicalcard.ie.

Medical Insurance

Medical InsuranceThe four main insurers (VHI, Laya, Aviva, Glo Health) all offer money back on GP visits. How much they will give you back varies according to which plan you have but can be half or more of every consultation you have. Some plans have an 'excess' so only give you money back if you spend a lot, while others give you money back even if you don't visit very often. It is worthwhile comparing the different plans to see which suits you best. We have included links to their websites in the Links section.
