Staff Profiles

From humble beginnings when we opened in 2008 with one doctor and a receptionist, we have grown to a multi-doctor practice with a full administration team and practice nurse support.

As we have grown so have our team of allied healthcare professionals all adding up to a true one-stop-shop for most, if not all, of your healthcare needs.
The doctors are fully Irish-qualified (MICGP) GPs with many years of experience of both healthcare and life who are constantly working hard to stay up-to-date with relevant advances on modern medicine.

At present we have 4 regular GPs, a Practice Nurse and a 4 person Admin team all dedicated to ensuring that your healthcare needs are met in the most efficient and professional way possible.

We will not compromise in our mission to deliver the best in family healthcare in a friendly and welcoming environment.

Call Michelle, Fiona or Andy to book an appointment or if you have any queries about any aspect of our services.
