At the Coombe Family Practice we provide medical care to both private and GMS (medical card) patients in the local area.
If you live in Ireland and do not have a medical card or GP visit card, you are considered a private patient if you visit your family doctor (GP). This means that you must pay for the services provided.
Services which are free to private patients
Certain services are provided to private patients free of charge—for example, maternity and infant welfare services, immunization and vaccination services and CervicalCheck (national cervical screening programme). There are certain terms and conditions of these schemes. If unsure, please ask reception when booking your appointment.
