Under 6 GP Card

Details

We are accepting patients on the Under 6 scheme.  

Please be aware that this only entitles the patient to the GP consultation and does not include medications, prescriptions, etc.

Our routine clinic times for medical card patients is Monday – Friday from 9am until 5pm (last appointment is 4.30pm).  This is for patients registered with RocDoc only. Routine matters will not be dealt with outside of these times. Please do not be offended if we cannot offer an appointment and we ask that you contact us first to see appointment availability.

As a medical card patient we can only see patients registered with RocDoc for routine matters as part of this clinic in hours, very strict regulations apply for patients not registered with RocDoc and / or Out of Hours matters to be seen.

At time of making your appointment you should notify reception that the child is a medical card holder in order for the card to be validated online and we always suggest that you carry their GMS card with you or at least know the number.  We need to validate the details to ensure that the card is still valid and they are still registered with RocDoc. Should we be unable to validate the details then the adult attending may be liable to treatments as a private patient and RocDoc can not reimburse patients afterwards if we could not validate details and / or later qualify for a scheme.

A patient can only be seen outside of the routine clinic times under the medical card schemes if the matter is urgent / non routine and cannot be safety deferred until normal routine in hours clinic according to the HSE.  The matter must also require immediate attention and in the opinion of the treating medical practitioner would be injurious to the patients’ health to wait and must always be a face to face consultation. If the matter falls into these categories then the patient may be seen in our Out of Hours surgery which commences after the routine clinic until 9pm, Saturdays, Sundays, Public Holidays and Good Friday.  Outside of these hours please contact Doctor on Duty on 01 453 9333.

If the child is not registered with RocDoc then according to the HSE you cannot be seen under the medical card schemes at RocDoc and must seek advice from the GP that they are registered with.

We cannot offer follow up appointments, reviews, repeat prescriptions, sick certs, dressing changes, etc. outside of the routine clinic hours.

Testimonials

  • Excellent service from start to finish. They saw me super quickly. I had booked the wrong test but they kindly explained to me how to fix it and helped me through it. Seen super quickly. All of the staff were very polite and the rest didn’t hurt a bit (first time ever that it didn’t hurt me). Really nice. Then I couldn’t access my document but within a minute Makiesse in the chat sorted it out and sent it to me. I’m so happy from start to finish. Quick, clean, kind staff and competent. Some of the reviews here had worried me but I wanted to say that I’m glad I used them and will use them again. Thank you all.

  • The two lads that helped me were incredible (at check in and doing the test). The results were faster than I could have imagined. It was a little more expensive than I would have hoped, but I would pay double knowing what I know now.

  • I needed help to apply credits to test bookings at Cork airport for myself and my family. Kim, the customer service agent, was extremely efficient and walked me through the process promptly. When I made an error in the booking, they were quick to correct it and were polite and patient throughout. Highly recommend both the test service and their client support.

  • The staff is fantastic.
    I’ve done a blood test and some results didn’t come back.
    They allow me to do again free of charge and
    Lynn was tireless to chase the results up.
    Lynn is dedicated, patient and very professional.
    I am lucky to have these people near my house.

  • Due to airline delays, I had to work with Tony, via chat, to reschedule my appointment at the Dublin airport several times. It was the best chat experience I've ever had with any representative, at any organization, for any purpose. He was responsive, timely, and took care of me from a customer perspective. His service was outstanding, as was the rest of the crew I interacted with at the testing site. Highly recommend.

  • I needed an Antigen Rapid test at Dublin Airport. Although I arrived more than 1 hour earlier, people at RocDoc tested me immediately! Cool job! Unfortunately, the Receipt was not transmitted to my e-mail address. Chatting with Hayley from RoDoc, I received the Receipt within a minute! Great service. Thank you so much or your kind support!

  • While there were issues in accessing my account, I contacted Customer Service and Anna was amazing. She went far above and beyond to ensure I was able to access the service and the results. She proactively rang me after the test to ensure I got the results and assisted to make sure they were received. It has been a very long time since I experienced proactive customer service like this. Thank you Anna.

  • Tony is the one and only person who has answered my question in regard my desire to have an RT-PCR test that does not involve poking and prodding up my nose. I've had two of these so far and they just hurt like hell, during and after. So, knowing that RocDoc can do a throat swab instead is such a relief. Thank you Tony! Maggie
