Arriving to the Emergency Department
On arrival to the Emergency Department
Please bring the following:
- List of medications your child is taking
- Your GPs name
- GP Referral letter
- Medical card
If your child's condition is not an emergency
You can visit your local pharmacy if you feel unwell. Pharmacists are qualified healthcare professionals. They can give you medicines you can buy without a prescription, medicines you have a prescription for, advice on minor illnesses, and can tell you if you need to see a GP.
GPs and GP Out-of-Hours Services:
GPs are running additional clinics during this time of high pressure. If you urgently need to see a GP outside their clinic hours, you can contact your local GP out-of-hours service.
Children’s Urgent Care (by appointment)
CHI at Connolly treats children with minor injuries and illnesses that are not life-threatening and do not require a visit to the Emergency Department (ED). The urgent care service is by appointment only.
For healthcare professionals
GPs may refer patients to Emergency Departments if conditions are serious or life-threatening.
