About Us

Portmarnock Family Practice is a modern, computerised surgery and is a recognised teaching practice for UCD undergraduate and graduate entry medical students. It is also a training practice for postgraduate GP training affiliated with the UCD / Dublin Mid Leinster GP training programme. We will have a GP Registar woking as part of the team from November 2022 on. 

The practice has recently been renovated. The surgery is wheelchair and buggy friendly. The waiting room has a play area for children and has cool filtered water on tap. There are baby changing facilities on site and there is free car parking facilities to the rear of the practice.

Our Story

The practice was set up by Dr. Flanagan in 1991 and was originally located at the Stables office park. In 1996, as the practice expanded, it moved to the centre of Portmarnock opposite the church. In 2001 Dr. Valerie Flood joined the practice and in 2004 the partnership became known as Portmarnock Family Practice. Dr. Sarah Short joined the practice in 2017 and has become partner of the practice.  She has recently become a GP trainer affiliated with the UCD / Dublin Mid Leinster GP training scheme.
