SouthDoc is an out-of-hours family doctor service which provides patients with access to a doctor for urgent medical needs when our surgery is closed. The service operates outside of normal surgery hours, i.e. evenings from 6pm, weekends and bank holidays.
A member of staff from SouthDoc will take your details* over the telephone and a qualified nurse will call back and advise accordingly. If an appointment is necessary, a time will then be given to see a doctor at the SouthDoc Treatment Centre which is located in Bandon or in the case of an emergency, an ambulance may be called.
SouthDoc also provides a call out service for those unable to travel. All consultation notes are forwarded to the surgery automatically to ensure your medical records are kept up-to-date.
(* Medical Card patients should have their card number to hand and present this at the SouthDoc Treatment Centre)
