How to Prepare For Your Consultation


Tips to Help You Properly Prepare for Your Consultation

Below are instructions that will allow you to better coordinate with your GP throughout the entire process of your consultation.

  1. One consultation = one problem. A typical consultation with a doctor GP lasts about 10 -15 minutes in Ireland. A patient is scheduled every 15 minutes.  Therefore, during the consultation it is only possible to discuss one important matter. If there numerous things you'd like to discuss with the GP, let our secretary know. 
  2. A consultation may only take place if an arrangement with the secretary of the clinic was made beforehand.
  3. Giving the purpose of your visit to the secretary helps in better organizing the consultation's time and date. However, in the case of an intimate matter, you may say that the matter is " Private"
  4. During the visit, there is no time to discuss additional issues that you forgot to report to the secretary.
  5. For your GP consultation please try to be on time.
  6. If you are late for your appointment please be aware that complications will arise and you may either have to rebook for another consultation or your consultation will be cut short. You may have to wait a few hours or longer for a free slot to be opened up.  
  7. The GP is not obliged to honour the tests or recommendations of doctors performed in another countries. The GP proposes treatment based on the health recommendations in force in Ireland.
  8. During the visit, please do not refer/discuss any illness or test result of your family members.
  9. The nurse and secretary will inform you about your test results via text or telephone. If necessary, the patient is invited for a consultation with the doctor to discuss the results.
  10. During the consultation, only one person may be accompanied for the purpose of translation or undressing assistance.
  11. Upon arrival at our clinic, report your arrival to the secretarary.
