NowDoc facing a busy Christmas period

The HSE is urging people to be considerate in how they access health services over the Christmas period.

As GPs take their holidays, Now Doc will be providing its normal range of services, but people are being urged not to attend if they can wait until their own GP surgeries reopen.

People are also being urged not to go the A&E department of Letterkenny General Hospital except in emergency situations.

Dr John Madden says it will be a particularly busy period for the Now Doc service, and people should consider before ringing the service.
