I cannot book appointment in advance. Do you see "walk-in" patients?

The Heights Medical Centre operates on an “Appointment only” basis. However, we understand that, sometimes, circumstances might prevent you to contact us in advance for booking an appointment.

Thus, we accept “walk-in patients” as well, but please bear in mind that, as per our policy, patients arriving to their appointments have priority. This is to make it fair on people who have appointments booked in and to ensure that their appointments run on time.

Of course, this does not apply to emergency cases that need immediate treatment.

Do you accept Medical Card holders?

The Heights Medical Centre provides primary health care services to both private and Medical Card/GP Visit card holders. The latter ones, however, need to register with us before their first visit. For details, please call our reception at +353 91 458 543 during opening hours.

I am a Medical Card holder registered with another GP surgery. Can I use my Medical Card upon my visit to the Heights Medical Centre?

No. If you are a Medical/GP Visit Card holder, you are entitled to receive primary health care services at the expense of your Medical/GP Visit Card only from the doctor you have been registered with. The only exception is if you are in emergency, and the Heights Medical Centre is the closest GP surgery to you during our opening hours.

How can I register to the GP Visit Card for children under 6?
