WeekendDoc is an out-of-hours private doctors surgery which is available on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays in Galway.
Consultations are by appointment only between the hours of 9.00 am and 9.00pm on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.
If you are feeling unwell and need to see a doctor with any medical problems usually treated by your family doctor, or even if you simply have not had the time during your working week to see your own doctor, we are happy to assist you.
We can also do your health check, perform your cervical smear and prescribe contraception at your weekend appointment.
We are happy to see children who become unwell over the weekend and to refer them for further care if this is required - either back to your own doctor or to the hospital if this is necessary to ensure safety.
This new service is centrally located in Lower Salthill, on the lower level of the well known historic Nile Lodge. Please go to the right hand side, lower entrance on arrival.
The aim of WeekendDoc is to complement your regular GP service by providing access to medical care at times when your own Family Doctor may not be available. If ongoing care is required we will refer you back to your own doctor, or for urgent care to a relevant consultant or a hospital that is most suited to your needs.
