Find a GP
General practitioners (GPs) are family doctors. They treat all common medical conditions. A GP is usually the first doctor you will see about non-emergency illnesses and health issues. They refer people to hospitals and medical services for urgent and specialist treatment.
The majority of GPs provide services on behalf of the HSE, to people with Medical Cards, GP Visit Cards and other schemes. Most people who do not have a medical card or GP visit card will pay a fee for a GP visit. If you go directly to an Emergency Department without a GP referral, there is a charge.
If you need to see a GP outside their clinic hours, you can contact your local GP out of hours service.
