Oakwood Medical Clinic is the partnership of Dr Nicola Black and Dr Geoff Lavery. Between them they have many years experience working as GPs in D15, in both single-handed and group practices, dealing with medical card and private patients alike. As a result, they have intimate knowledge of the local population health needs, strong links with local health service providers and they have established themselves as hard working, enthusiastic and trustworthy GPs. In addition to their vocational GP training, each doctor has attained further qualifications in their chosen areas of special interest, providing for a broad synergistic skills-base within the clinic. Over a number of years they have worked closely together and have forged a strong bond based on their mutual shared view of the future of general practice – maintaining the principal values of primary care while embracing modern developments. With this in mind they have developed the Oakwood Medical Clinic team to enable appointment access continuity care, with choice of male or female doctors, providing an expansive range of services for all age groups.
Due to the COVID 19 outbreak, any patients with symptoms that may be suggestive of COVID 19 are asked not to attend the surgery but to telephone us. They will be contacted by the GP, whether by phone or videocall who will advise them.
Our surgery doors will remain locked during this outbreak and patients who are given appointments are asked to telephone us or ring the bell upon arrival. The receptionist will check you in and then ask you to remain outside until the doctor is ready to see you. We will then ring you to ask you to come in. This measure is for the protection of anyone at the surgery – patients and staff.
We would also respectfully ask that patients do not come into the surgery accompanied – again as a protective measure.
Due to the staffing pressures as a result of the outbreak, our telephone lines will be open from 8am to 5pm only. The lines are expected to be extremely busy over the coming weeks and we would ask you to be patient during what will be a trying time for everyone.
Stay safe; observe Social distancing and WASH YOUR HANDS!
In November 19 we changed our opening hours to 9am to 5pm in both our Castleknock and Clonsilla surgeries. The phone lines open each morning at 8am and are open til 5pm.
Please note that we are not currently accepting any new patients, as our patient lists are at capacity. However, we have now opened a waiting list for when our list reopens, so let us know if you would like to be added to this list.
