Our Nursing & Administrative Team

Practice Nurse Celine McSweeney

Practice Receptionist Victoria Schiopu

This is a teaching practice that is affiliated with the UCD GP Training Scheme.

 

Dr Niamh Moran has been appointed a GP Trainer of GP Trainees. We have one GP Registrar Doctor in the practice on rotation. They are not medical students, rather, they are fully qualified doctors with years of hospital experience and in their final stages to becoming a GP.

 

They work closely with Dr Moran. We have a critical shortage of GPs in this area, and we welcome these doctors to Maynooth and hope that some may chose to remain here in the longer term.

 

We are delighted to have Dr Naomi Conway with us at present.
