We are now utilising BILLINK PAYMENT SYSTEM to allow for online payments. Our system will text you a link to pay any overdue outstanding invoices. It also allows you to pay for your recent visit, should you prefer to pay online rather than at the surgery by cash/card.

 

Many thanks for your co-operation.

 

July 2022.

We are sorry to announce that Dr. Fiona Belton has ceased working in the practice. If your medical card was with Dr. Belton, you will have received a letter from the HSE asking you to seek an alternative GP. Please rest assured that Dr. Julie Mac Fadden and Dr. Ann Marie Soden will be taking on all of Dr. Belton's patients for your continuity of care in Castleknock Medical Centre. You are welcome to consult with any of our doctors. We would like to thank Dr. Belton for all her hard work in the surgery over the past many years. She has been a wonderful GP and work colleague.
