    I'm just wondering are there any GPs open on Saturdays in Waterford City. I've googled and havent found any that are open on Saturdays.

    Caredoc is your only port of call on the weekends if you want GP servies, but to be honest, in my experience they only "patch you up" until you can see your own GP.

    I find them good TBH , I've been in there a few times when kids sick, if it means getting prescription earlier than Monday or just peace of mind, money well spent.

    It can depend on who you get in the Caredoc on any given weekend / evening.

    Some are excellent and thankfully those I've seen with my little one have been but I have been myself once or twice over the years and one of the doctors I met was appalling!

    Guess it's the same with anything where you are randomly assigned someone to provide you a service (some good, some bad)

    Five days in the week to go to a Doctor and you can't make it!

    I would look for Josef Mengele before going to Care doc! :D

    You know they are the local GPs on rotation. Just as likely to get your own doctor out there

    That's not the case, it was set up that way but doesn't run that way.

    That’s what my own doctor told me about 2 months ago as he was commenting about the fact he was on that weekend. His explanation then was it’s a rotating system that all doctors were obliged to partake in. Is it different now ?

    A bump for a new practice at the Williamstown Centre above McAuleys - HR Clinic which is part of a chain they are open 7 days a week, they charge 40 euro a pop which is pretty cheap (!) by local standards, other HR Clinics which have been open longer also charge this amount so it's not an opening offer.

    As I understand it they don't accept medical cards?

    A massive plus if so as it might be possible to actually get an appointment for once.
