We are committed to giving the best possible GP services to all our patients. New patients please note Athboy Family Practice operates a waiting list for patients wishing to register with this practice. Preference is given to patients who do not have a GP for the reason that they may have recently moved to the area.

Due to health and safety reasons we may have to suspend taking on new patients depending on workload considerations.
