Shannon Medical Centre is a General Practice providing healthcare for all the family

Notice for Patients May 2019

Dr. Hackett, Newmarket on Fergus has just retired. We wish him the very best on his well-earned retirement and wish him good health and happiness for the future. 

If you had a medical card or doctor visit card with Dr. Hackett then you should have received a letter from the HSE.

The team at Shannon Medical Centre have been asked by the HSE to look after you on an interim basis. We are happy to do so to ensure that you will not be left without a doctor in the area. This was only agreed on the 16th May so please be aware that it may take some time for the secure transfer of your data due to GDPR compliance and other issues.

We are very much looking forward to caring for your healthcare needs.

This is a considerable change for people and also a challenge for us but we have expanded our medical team with two additional Irish trained GPs joining the practice. We also have two nurses and we hope that this transition causes the least possible inconvenience to you and your family.

If attending the surgery, then please bring with you a written list of your medications, if any, and if time allows a list of any medical conditions or allergies you may have. Your local pharmacy may be able to provide you with a copy of this. We will delete this request once secure data transfer has taken place between our IT system and Dr Hackett’s IT system.

We ask our regular patients to bear with us in the coming weeks if the surgery is busier than usual but please be assured your access to your doctor will not be affected due the increase in staffing levels

From the team at Shannon Medical Centre:

Dr. Yvonne Williams Dr. Marianne Lawless Dr. Cian Cagney  

Snr.Receptionist Debbie Phelan     &   Receptionist Tina Chandler
