COVID 19 GENERAL INFORMATION

During this difficult time of  Covid 19, Callan Medical Centre is still open to see patients for your routine needs such as  blood tests, childhood vaccinations, ante natal visits, or routine check ups.  During times of high Covid numbers in the community, we will try to reduce the flow of people to our practice, and will offer telephone consultations when it is practical to do so.  

 We are currently operating a No Waiting Room Policy where possible.  If you arrive by car, please let us know that you have arrived and wait in your car until the doctor/nurse  telephones you to come directly to the consultation room.

The HSE Website currently has some very useful information about Covid 19 Vaccines.   This may help answer any queries or concerns that you may have.  

It is very important that you look after your general health at this time.   Callan Medical Centre is here to help with your health issues, either your ongoing medical issues, or any new medical problems that arise.  

If you are showing ANY new respiratory symptoms, eg a cough, high temperatures, sore throats, runny nose, please telephone the surgery on 056-7725237.   A doctor will speak with you over the phone and will assess your illness.
