Information for Patients

D Doc covers the patients of the majority of North Dublin Doctors. You can check if your GP is covered by our service on the listing on our home page.

If you are unsure and would like advice or feel you should see one of our GPs please call 1850 22 44 77

 

How it operates:

  • When you first call D-Doc (1850 22 44 77) a call-taker will take all your details and then a triage nurse will call you back. The triage nurse will discuss the nature of the medical problem and will decide the best course of action for you to take. This might be simple advice from the nurse, a call from the doctor or the arrangement of an appointment to see a doctor in one of our centres. In exceptional cases and based on medical need and other factors a home visit will be arranged.
  • When you call please have your medical card number ready for the call taker and bring your medical card to the centre for verification by our receptionist.
  • For centre location details please go to the home page or click on the centre locations in the top navigation.
  • When you come to one of our centres the receptionist will confirm your arrival to the doctor.
  • After the consultation a complete record of the consultation will be forwarded to your own GP to be added to your medical record.

The service is free to medical card holders who produce a valid medical card at the time of the doctor visit. All other patients are charged private fees. The cost for a consultation is €60.00 in one of our five centres. In exceptional cases D Doc provide a home visit service. This is free to medical card holders. The home visit fee for a private patient is €80.00. There is no discount for children or infants.

Children under six who are registered with the new scheme (effective July) and are in possession of a medical card number will not be charged. for more click here.

Where two members of the same family are seen at the same visit the second family member will be charged 50% of the applicable fee. If one family member has a medical card and the second person does not, the second person will be charged the full  fee. If a patient presents more than once with the same symptoms in the same period of D Doc cover, i.e. twice in the same night or during the same weekend, they will not be charged for the subsequent visit.

Please note that private fees will be applied to anyone who does not produce a valid medical card at the time of the consultation. No refunds will be given.
