Our team is a group of highly qualified, motivated healthcare professionals, all affiliated to appropriate professional bodies.
The Castle Medical Centre practice was established in 1979 by Dr Des Bluett in Castlelawn Heights, Galway. It has developed and grown over the years. In 2007, we moved to a purpose-built premises in Liosban, which provides state-of-the-art facilities and services for our patients. The premises is fully wheel-chair accessible with ample free parking available to the rear.
Many of our patients have been attending this practice since its foundation in 1979. It has been our privilege to care for generations of the same families. Our practice, because of its size, location and skill base, can facilitate new patients on a daily basis. We have male and female GPs and a practice nurse, who are available to all our patients to provide a comprehensive healthcare service. At certain times of the year, we are involved in training medical students.
We care for private and medical card patients. While all services are available to both groups, all are not available free of charge to Medical Card Holders. We are affiliated to the Irish College of General Practitioners, and are active advocates for improved health services for all.
