Services & Fees

Our Services

Ross Family Practice provides a wide range of General Practice services. Most are outlined below but if you are unsure, please ask.

Our appointments are in 15-minute slots. We would be grateful if you could bear this in mind. If there is a particular service you require, please indicate this to the receptionist as certain appointments require different scheduling.

We may not be able to cover a list of issues at a single appointment. In fact, if we try to cover too much there is a risk of rushing through the more important issue. We want you to feel that we have dealt with the important issues in a comprehensive manner. If an additional appointment or follow up is required, we are more than happy to schedule this.

  • Women’s Health 

    Cervical smear checks, breast examinations, menstrual issues, menopause, fertility etc.

  • Men’s Health 

    It is a fact that men attend their GP less frequently than women. We are very sensitive to men’s needs and are happy to discuss any issues you may have.

  • Children’s Health 

    Six-week baby check, childhood vaccinations, management of acute illness and any ongoing issues your child may have.

  • Antenatal Care 

    We provide antenatal care under the Maternity and Infant Care Scheme. This means that antenatal care is free for all women. Please note that visits unrelated with your pregnancy are not covered by the scheme, and if you do not have a medical or doctor visit card, there will be a charge for such appointments.
