Register as New Patient
We are currently only accepting requests for registration from patients moving to the practice area. Please call reception on (0402) 32421 for more information.
We offer a full range of medical services at Arklow Medical Practice to GMS patients with a Medical Card or Doctor Visit Card, and to private patients.
To register, you will need to complete a registration form. Under the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), we also require you to complete a consent form allowing us to process your health data. You can collect both forms from our practice.
If you have a medical card and you want to change your doctor you will first need to meet with one of our doctors. If your request if accepted, you will need to complete a Change of Doctor form giving details of the new doctor. You can download one of these from the Forms & References section on our homepage.
If for some reason your request to join the practice has been declined, you will be informed by phone.
When contacting Arklow Medical Practice to make your first appointment as a new patient, please inform the administrative staff of this so that a longer appointment time can be allocated to you.
Please note: When applying for a Medical Card you will need to provide certain documents to support your application. Click here for information about the requirements.
