Caredoc continuing to experience very high levels of activity

The HSE has confirmed that the Caredoc service locally is continuing to experience very high levels of activity.


Caredoc provides urgent out-of-hours GP care for patients of participating practices in Sligo, North Leitrim and West Cavan.


It is predicted that the weeks ahead will be extremely busy and all efforts are being made, however people are being asked to expect to wait in a queue to have their call managed during peak times.


Arrangements for cover this weekend are from 6pm this evening Friday December 30th until Tuesday at 9am.


The service can be contacted by calling 0818 365399 but people are also being reminded that is not a replacement for the Emergency Services. For emergencies call 999 or 112


The GP out-of-hours service is for patients needing Urgent medical care. Where symptoms are mild, patients should access the HSE – Under The Weather website for helpful self-care advice and attend their pharmacy for over the counter medication as appropriate.
