COVID19 is still present, and we continue to manage our services to ensure your safety, and the safety of our clinic teams, and to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus in our clinics.  As a healthcare setting, all patients attending a Dublin Well Woman Centre clinic are required to wear a mask.

 All services have now been restored (with the exception of private smears).  We continue to offer some services by telephone, including repeat pill prescriptions and Early Medical Abortions.  Other services may start with a telephone consultation with a Clinic Doctor, followed by an in-clinic visit if we need to take bloods or swabs, or if a procedure is involved.

Many Well Woman patients appreciate the convenience offered by telephone consultations; some others prefer to sit down with our Clinic Doctor.  A patient who needs to have an in-clinic visit will always be facilitated by our Receptionists, but please bear in mind that telephone consultations reduce the amount of time patients spend in the clinic in a time when COVID19 remains a concern, without any reduction in the quality of medical care you receive.

You can book your CervicalCheck smear (HSE national screening programme) with one of our clinics by contacting them directly.  You can book your Telephone Appointment with one of our clinics through our Online Booking Form or by ringing the clinic directly. Please see our short animation for more information. Counselling Services also remain telephone-based, and our short animation gives more information.

If you are an Early Medical Abortion patient, we can provide both visits required as a Telephone Appointment. You will need to collect your home care pack from the clinic, and you can nominate a person of your choice to do if you cannot attend the clinic. Please see our Step-By-Step Guide or watch our short animation on how these appointments are now operating.

Our Receptionist will continue to ask you some COVID-related screening questions prior to your clinic appointment (this applies in particular to those who have travelled into Ireland recently), and if you have any COVID-like symptoms, we ask you to remain at home until these symptoms have cleared. 

If you are a new patient, or a current patient who wishes to update their information, please complete this form and return it by e-mail to the clinic of your choice (Please download the form to your desktop or laptop before filling it out).
If you are unable to complete the PDF form, you can click here to submit our online patient registration form.

We are grateful to all of our patients and clients for your support over the last two years of COVID19.
