Patients sought for RTÉ medical series
A new RTÉ medical series is making its final call for people to book free doctors’ appointments in North Clare this weekend.
You Should Really See a Doctor has travelled around the country with its mobile clinic over the summer and the final show in the series will be filmed in Lisdoonvarna on Saturday (September 19).
Dr Pixie McKenna and Dr Phil Kieran will be at the Matchmaking Festival, offering on-the-spot consultations and health checks.
“We are particularly interested in hearing from people who have researched their symptoms online and would like a real doctor’s advice.
“Most of us have been there; you feel a mild pain in the head and next thing you’re reading an internet article about a rare tropical disease that you think you might have. From stomach problems to sleep issues to skin problems – the real doctors want to hear from you,” a spokesperson for the show stated.
The doctors are happy to hear from people who have a new problem or something that has been bothering them for years. It is also possible to fill out an application form on behalf of a family member or friend by filling out the relevant section.
Application forms are available on the Audience Participation page of the RTÉ Television website.
The team will be filming from 10am. The GP check-ups are free and while there will be a limited amount of walk-in slots available, if people really want to be seen, they should contact the office on 01 7088195 to make an appointment.
