We are a normal GP practice, looking after public and private patients.

We are 2 doctors, myself and Dr Sinead Beirne, and a nurse (my Mrs Caitriona O’Sullivan, who is practice nurse, midwife, breastfeeding support etc). We share 3 reception staff with the other GP practice.

We provide the full range of GP services, from cradle to grave, including maternity care, cervical screening, childhood and travel vaccination, contraception, health screening, ECG, lung function testing, chronic illness care, blood tests, repeat prescriptions and so on, but we also have some specialized services that are not commonly found in most practices:

  • Minor surgery procedures, from ingrown toenails and cysts to moles and skin cancers, wart freezing etc. We take referrals from all over Dublin and carry out approx. 700 procedures annually
  • We provide ultrasound scanning, including general abdominal scanning, assessment of prostate, aorta, gallstones, uterus, and pregnancy scanning.
  • As a result, we have an extensive maternity practice, participate in shared antenatal care with the hospital, offer midwife care and provide comprehensive breastfeeding support for new parents.
  • We combine ultrasound and surgical skills to find and remove contraceptive implants that get lost in people’s arms
  • We have substantial expertise in diabetes care.

The Light in the Darkness

Untouched by the wind, the ethereal glow of a dandelion clock is Still Standing. Years ago and perhaps now still, children used to blow away the seeds in so many puffs and imagine the time it took to clear them all. The black seeds signified wishes of prosperity and new beginnings.

As a child I always thought of these plants as magical creations and in painting one, I try to convey to the viewer its importance – standing bright against the darkness, to signify hope in darkness. Although considered a pesky weed, the dandelion clock is one of natures most beautiful perfections and wonderment. Next time you come across one make a wish and dream.
