Roma Clinic in Tallaght

This GP clinic with interpreting service currently provides for 2 clinic sessions per week in collaboration with the Tallaght Roma Integrated Project.

 

Kingscourt Primary Care Centre, Co. Cavan & Mobile Clinic Co. Monaghan

The Safetynet Team provide a weekly appointments based GP clinic to international protection applicants in the Cavan/Monaghan region who do not have medical cards. This clinic has been running for two years and recently has included a mobile clinic in Carrickmacross to Roma who cannot access care in Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan.

 

70 Eccles Street

The purpose of this clinic is to support the Emergency Department at the Mater hospital, seeing people who present to ED and who would more appropriately be seen in General Practice. People are triaged by an experienced ED doctor, and referred to a separate nearby site, to be seen by the GP.  A dedicated Safetynet nurse supports this process. We provide GP-level care and only do same-day investigations that would normally be done in a GP setting. The service is well established, with very good working relationships and mutual support between the services. Three mornings a week Safetynet will be providing nursing and support worker assistance to homeless.

 

Capuchin

The Capuchin Centre was transferred to Safetynet Primary Care from the Grangegorman Family Practice in 2020. The purpose of the clinic is to provide GP and primary care to marginalised groups and those without access to healthcare in Dublin’s North Inner City, with a particular focus on Roma people. This is done by adopting a low threshold and flexible model of care provision, with culturally appropriate supports including on site interpreter and support worker. The clinics are also very valuable in further assessing the needs of the Roma Community in Dublin and working with local and national NGOs towards providing equal access to healthcare for Roma people.
