General Practice Consultations


Experienced General Practitioners at Union Quay Medical Centre

Forming a trusting relationship with your General Practitioner is important for the majority of people. Whether you suffer from a chronic illness, or require advice on a medical subject, our GPs in Cork will ensure that you receive information and education. Your care and well-being is our number one priority.

In recent years, due to the advancement of the internet, many people are now attempting to self-diagnose online. While the internet provides a vast amount of trustworthy and important information, there is also a great amount of misinformation available online. For this reason, it is important to consult an experienced professional where your health is concerned.

By paying €17 per month for an adult or €8 per month for a child, you can have peace of mind that if you require a consultation, or even a medical certificate, there will be no added cost.
