Coronavirus (Covid 19) News
Although things have improved greatly from a hospitalisation perspective, the arrival of the delta-variant has reminded us that the Covid pandemic is not finished yet! The case numbers remain stubbornly in the 500+ cases per day range with the occasional exception. Please continue to observe social distancing, wear masks and wash hands frequently.
The surgery is operating in a more normal way at present with appointments available but if you have any respiratory symptoms (cough, sore throat, blocked nose, shortness of breath) we will be referring you for a Covid test before you are seen. Please continue to phone the surgery for an appointment and do not arrive unscheduled for everyone’s safety.
We are also very busy with vaccinations and have commenced covid-vaccination based on age-cohort rather than clinical risk. We are now inviting patients aged 16 or older to register for vaccination using the link above. This is for patients of Gladstone Street Surgery ONLY! We understand that the vaccination clinics significantly interfere with the normal running of the practice and appreciate your patience. From a health perspective, vaccination is a serious priority at present. Click the link above for further information on our vaccination campaign.
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.
