The HSE have stopped payments for telephone calls regarding covid19 symptoms.
The following is advised:
If you have symptoms of COVID 19, you should isolate, regardless of the result of an antigen test.
Paracetamol can be used for symptom relief.
You should rest and take plenty of fluids.
We recommend antigen tests daily when you have symptoms, as it is not uncommon for early swabs to be negative.
Information on management of minor illness can be found on www.undertheweather.com.
If you feel that you are very unwell, or that you are at high risk of complications of either Covid19, influenza (flu), or other illnesses, please contact reception at 046 9555 006. A doctor may call you, or an appointment can be made for you if needed.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE COST OF THESE TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS OR RESPIRATORY ASSESSMENT APPOINTMENTS IS NO LONGER COVERED BY THE HSE; AS SUCH, OUR TELEPHONE CONSULTATION FEE (EURO 30) OR OUR FACE TO FACE CONSULTATION FEE (EURO 60 ) APPLIES FOR PATIENTS WHO HAVE NO MEDICAL CARD.
