COVID-19

Due to the unprecedented developments in our country and in light of the evolving Government preparations in response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Charter Medical is temporarily closing its Health Screening, STI Screening and Aeromedical Departments with immediate effect. Patients with upcoming appointments will be contacted in the coming days to advise of any changes to your appointment. These unprecedented measures are being taken to protect our staff and our patients and to position Charter Medical to provide support of the prioritised needs of the overall Healthcare system over the forthcoming weeks.

Anyone who has had exposure to a confirmed case in the last 14 days and has symptoms should:

  • Follow HSE advice on www.hse.ie
  • Phone their GP or Emergency services on 112 or 999
  • For further information call HSELIVE on 1850 24 1850

We appreciate your cooperation at this time, thank you.

We will continue to operate the following clinics with some restrictions in place:

  • Mater Minor Injury Unit
  • Medicine for the Elderly Clinic

Please read this below before attending Charter Medical Group

  • Think before you attend an appointment – every appointment carries risk of spreading this virus
  • Practice social distancing, stand/sit at least 2 metres from the next patient or staff member
  • If are you attending for an appointment, please do not arrive before your allotted appointment time. We cannot implement safe social distancing if there are too many patients in a waiting room
  • Patients are the only members of the public to attend the clinic, unless immobile or require carer assistance. This is strictly limited to one person only.
  • Children are not allowed on the clinic premises at all.

We have taken this difficult decision in order to protect not only the health of our team but also our patients. We ask all patients to support us and their community during this difficult time.

Online appointment bookings:

All online booking systems have been suspended until further notice.
