COVID-19 Notice

COVID-19 has altered how we work but be assured that we are still available to you.  A doctor or nurse will now speak to all patients requesting an appointment.  If we can manage to help you by phone or video consult we will do so.  Some patients will still need to come in to the surgery and this will be arranged if it is deemed necessary. We are asking all patients to please attend their appointment alone where possible and to wear a face mask.
If you are concerned about having COVID -19 or being in contact with it please call us ASAP so that we can advise you and arrange testing

Located in Ballybricken in the heart of Waterford City, Fitzpatrick’s Medical Centre is a modern, accessible GP Practice.  We pride ourselves on offering accessible and efficient healthcare for all the family, in a welcoming environment.  Our experienced staff provide acute medical care as well as supporting our patients with long term health needs.  We place a strong emphasis on illness prevention and lifestyle medicine.

Menopause Matters

How can it affect me?

Menopause can be a time of huge change and have a negative impact on quality of life for many women.  Our experience is that there is a lack of support, information and expertise available in this area.  The symptoms experienced by women can hugely affect their relationships, their home life, their performance in the workplace as well as worsen longer term medical conditions .

Equally some women sail through the menopausal years without any symptoms or significant change in quality of life.  However, troublesome symptoms are only part of the issue.  We know that after menopause, a woman’s risk of many illnesses like osteoporosis, heart disease and stroke along with Alzheimers disease increase hugely.

What does this clinic offer?

Both our doctors have specialist training in assessing and managing perimenopausal and menopausal women.  We have found that any women raise the subject with us at the end of a consultation about other issues and sufficient time cannot be given to the impact it is having on a woman’s life.  By running a dedicated menopause clinic, we have found that we have more time to listen, to support and to educate our patients.  It is the first step in you learning what to expect from these years as well on the effects it may have on you. 

Decisions on treatment options are made jointly between our patients and doctors and adequate follow up is arranged.

An assessment of risk for both osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease is made based on bloods and physical examination. This helps guide the advice given on relevant investigations and treatments for other long term illnesses.
