THE HSE has advised that the NoWDOC GP Out of Hours Service in Donegal is currently very busy and experiencing a high volume of calls.
In a statement this afternoon a HSE spokesperson said: “Urgent calls are prioritised and are dealt with first. We ask for your patience due to the longer wait times.”
The NoWDOC Service, which is a partnership between the GP members of Caredoc and the HSE, provides an urgent GP family Doctor service to patients of GP members in Co Donegal and south Leitrim. The service is designed to provide urgent GP care to patients and is not a substitute for the Emergency Ambulance Service who are the appropriate service to deal with medical emergencies where they arise.
