Pre-assessment Questionaire & Food Diary

Please fill in the attached questionnaire and the food diary (most applicable to your appointment type) and return them 5-7 days in advance of your appointment. This is to ensure we make the best use of our consultation time which is 45 minutes. This allows me to pre-assess your condition and requirements. If you are unable to complete them in advance, please be advised that an additional appointment may be required to complete the initial assessment.

Payments

Transaction receipts are provided at each appointment and a full formal receipt suitable for reclaiming from health insurance and also revenue is provided on discharge.

Payment is taken when you book your appointment via a secure online payment system, or at your appointment via card.

Cancellation Policy

I operate a strict 48 hour cancellation period. The full fee for your assessment or review appointment will be applied for late cancellation. This fee will range from €100-€70.

Directions

Galway Bay Medical Centre

I generally recommend that people park in the open air car park on the docks which is just past the Harbour hotel. At the exit of this car park cross the road using a little traffic island and when you reach the footpath turn immediately right walking towards the Victoria hotel. You will see a large building on your left and on the ground floor written on the windows it says Galway Bay Medical Centre. 

Suite 30, The Galway Clinic

Parking is in the multi-storey car park on the way into the clinic.
