We are pleased to announce that Galway Bay Medical Centre have recently been accepted as a member of the Garda Siochana Doctor of Choice Scheme. This allows us to invoice Garda Siochana HRM directly on behalf of any member of the force that requires GP care. This scheme covers the cost of the consultation but excludes the cost of any injections, blood tests or medications as per advice from Garda HQ.
You can now register your positive antigen test with the HSE and also inform them of any close contacts you may have had.
We assume this will allow you to request a recovery cert in the future but not certain of this as yet..

We have opened our Flu Vaccination clinics and are taking bookings. Most of these clinics will be walk-in and while we won't have a clinic every day we have plenty of space for everyone.
We will be starting to give the Nasal Flu vaccine to 2-17 year olds from this week too.
Get vaccinated, get your kids vaccinated.
Drop us a quick email to email@example.com and we'll get back to you with details of the clinics.
It is now possible to manage the details which appear on your Covid vaccination cert online via the HSE portal.
You can request a change of details, ask for your cert to be reissued or check on the status of your certificate if you have yet to receive yours.
This should be much faster than dialing the helpline.

It has been a long wait for everyone, but we can finally start preparations for vaccinating our patients in-surgery.
We don’t know yet when exactly we will get out vaccine delivery, but we are already well advanced in the task of identifying the patients who are next to be vaccinated.
These will be the patients from the Very High Risk (Cohort 4) and High Risk (Cohort 7) groups.
Not all of the patients in these groups will be vaccinated in General Practice, with most of the highest risk patients being contacted by Acute Services and called for vaccination in the hospital.
The rollout of Covid19 vaccines for all patients over the age of 70, is due to begin the week of 15th February 2021.
The first group to be vaccinated will be age over 85, followed by age 80-84, then 75-79, then 70-74.
