Registering with a Doctor in Ireland

Nobody plans to get ill, sick, or injured.  What if it happens though?  You’d like to know that your doctor has your history and that they can access it without any problems.  This factor is even more important if you have got children with you.  It is also a method you can use to show that you’re centre of life has transferred to Ireland.

To register with a doctor in Ireland, you will need to send them the following information:

  • Full Name
  • Sex
  • Date of Birth
  • Full Residential Address
  • Contact Details
  • Next of Kin
  • PPSN Number
  • Previous GP Details – This enables the GP to get a copy of your medical history.
