Flu Season & Covid News
IMPORTANT VACCINATION NEWS: If you are in the small minority of our patients who have not yet had any vaccination against Covid, please consider getting vaccinated. It will not only protect you but also the more vulnerable in our society.
Flu-vaccine is now available to all patients age 65 or older as well as younger patients in at-risk groups (diabetes, heart disease, asthma, COPD etc.). Book your appointment using the link above.
Covid boosters at GSS are also proceeding and can be booked using the link above. We are focussing on patients over 50 years old as well as at-risk patients with certain chronic diseases. Beyond those groups, all patients who are more than 4 months since their last booster can avail of a booster vaccine. Pregnant women are also recommended by the HSE to get this booster. You can book using the link above. You must wait four months after having covid before getting a booster vaccine.
Note: If you have still not had a first or second vaccine, there is more information and a very easy reservation system on www.hse.ie
We are getting back close to normal service in the surgery at this point and most of our consultations are face-to-face again which is wonderful. We would, however, ask patients to be considerate of our administrative, medical and nursing staff and not attend the surgery without a phone call if you have any respiratory symptoms at all. Carrying out an antigen test before attending is something that many patients have been doing and we greatly appreciate these efforts. Please follow us on Facebook & Twitter for up to the minute updates (@gssdocs)
At any time, if you are unwell please contact us by phone at 052-6122894 or use the link above to request a telephone consultation and we will help you. For further information follow our Facebook page (@gladstonestreetsurgery) and Twitter (@gssdocs) which are updated regularly.
Stay safe, stay separate!

Welcome to Gladstone Street Surgery
In January 1978, Dr Richard Quirke opened the doors of Gladstone Street Surgery. A single handed GP for many years, he was joined in 2000 by Dr Mike Quirke and a short time later by Dr Tara Dillon. The range of services at GSS expanded over the years and other GP assistants have worked with us through this time. For a number of years now GSS has been a GP training practice attached to the South Eastern GP Training programme. Dr Richard retired in 2016.
This is a modern GP practice offering a complete range of services. Through our doctors and our practice nurses we offer illness and disease management as well as a large range of screening tests and therapeutic procedures. General Practice has evolved over the decades from an illness-based service to one in which health promotion and wellbeing are a core principle of healthcare. All current therapies and procedures are carried out at GSS and referral made to appropriate hospital specialists where necessary.
