Welcome to Knight’s Hill Medical Centre
Knight’s Hill Medical Centre was set up in 1997 by Dr Norman Murphy and Dr Fergus O’Connell. Both of these doctors had been in single handed practice here in Mayfield since the early 1970s but in order to improve the services they provided and to do so in a professional environment they combined their resources and re-developed the old residential building Dr Murphy had been practicing from. As a result Knight’s Hill Medical Centre is a spacious, fully wheelchair accessible, fit for purpose Family Medical Centre.
Dr Nicholas O’Keeffe joined the practice in 2007 and when first Dr O’Connell and then Dr Murphy retired he was joined by Dr Deirdre Long and Dr Aaron Calvin.
We have 3 Doctor consulting rooms, a Nurse’s room, a large and comfortable waiting room with a special area for children, wheelchair accessible bathrooms and separate reception and administration areas. There is ample on street parking and we are only 50 meters from the 208 Bus-stop. There are several pharmacies nearby, Bourke’s Pharmacy, Irwin’s Pharmacy and Walsh’s Pharmacy being the closest and all of these collect prescriptions from us for their customers on a daily basis.
Our aim to is provide as many services as possible here in Knight’s Hill and to keep referrals into the hospitals limited to those that can only be provided in a hospital environment. In addition to general family medicine we provide E.C.G.s, 24 Hour Blood Pressure Monitoring, Spirometry, Cryosurgery, Acupuncture, Travel Vaccines, Seasonal Flu Vaccines, Venesection, Phlebotomy, Implanon and Mirena insertion, Minor Surgery such as suturing, removal of skin lesions and Ingrown Toenails, Sports Medicine and Specialist Diabetic Nurse clinics. We are registered with all the major healthcare insurance providers such as VHI, LAYA, Irish Life and Glo. We are constantly striving to increase and improve the range of services we can provide in the community and work closely with the H.S.E. in this regard.
We are always interested in hearing what our patients think of the services we provide and welcome and suggestions they may have as to how we can improve.
