Mask-wearing Policy

It is of the utmost importance that we protect both our vulnerable patients and our staff members who may be at higher risk from exposure to the Covid19 virus.

It is the policy of Galway Bay Medical Centre that all patients and staff wear a facemask at all times, whether in consultation, in the waiting room or moving around the building.

We encourage the use of hand-sanitising stations which are available throughout the building.

Entry to the building will be refused to anyone who declines to wear a mask. You must wear a mask for the duration of your visit unless your GP asks you to remove it during your consult.

If you have a letter of Medical Exemption, we ask that you notify us of this when booking your consultation so that we can carry out a risk assessment prior to your visit. This may mean that you will be asked to attend only at a specific time or that your GP will need to wear full PPE for your visit.

In line with our Discrimination Policy we strive to treat all patients fairly regardless of disability but we also maintain a duty of care to our staff and other patients.

    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.
