Information for Patients of Dr Louise Shanahan

You may already be aware that Dr Louise Shanahan has recently left the Practice. We are sorry to be losing an excellent doctor but are happy to support Louise’s move to explore international medicine.

An experienced and well qualified GP partner, Dr Barry Coakley, will be joining us on the 1st March 2016 to take on Dr Shanahan’s patients.

In the meantime the care of these patients has been distributed amongst our other GPs.  On the 1st March 2016 these patients will be transferred to Dr Coakley.

Please do not hesitate to ask who the named GP with overall responsibility for your care is during the twenty week transition period.

The transfer will happen automatically and there is no action required by patients.

We understand that changing doctors can be concerning and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
