Gorey Surgery Owed Thousands For Emergency Clinic Appointments

GOREY SURGERY OWED THOUSANDS FOR EMERGENCY CLINIC APPOINTMENTS

Legal communications have been taken with the HSE’s Primary Care Reimbursement Service over the non-payment of out-of-hours fees to a County Wexford clinic.

The National Association of GPs say the Palms Surgery in Gorey is owed more than 20,000 euro relating to a Saturday morning emergency clinic.

The clinic provides emergency cover to practice patients until 12.00 noon.

However, the HSE has classified the session as a routine clinic and has refused to honour the consultation fee for the service since April of last year.

Doctor Peter Harrington runs surgery.

He says if a patient of the surgery has an urgent problem they attend the surgery for care and the HSE are required to pay them fees to look after those patients.
