NoWDOC expecting increase in demand over Christmas

The out of hours GP service for Co Donegal and South Leitrim is advising patients to ensure prescriptions and medicines are arranged with their own GP and pharmacy before the holiday period commences.

Those wishing to access the NoWDOC service are being reminded that waiting times may be longer than normal over the festive period.

NoWDOC Service Manager, Deirdre Moy, is advising that the service is designed to provide urgent GP care to patients and is not a substitute for the Emergency Ambulance Service.
