Medical doctor to join the team at the Lismore Clinic

Monday, March 16th, 2015

From Wednesday April 2nd next, General Practitioner, Dr. Noelle Quann will join the team at the Lismore Clinic, to set up a new medical practice in Lismore.

Dr. Quann is a vocationally trained General Practitioner on the GP Specialist Division of the Irish Medical Council register. Dr. Quann holds a great deal of experience both locally and nationally, and also internationally, having worked with The Royal flying Doctor Service of Australia. In addition to her role as a GP, she is also actively involved in emergency medicine, currently working a dual role as A&E Registrar in University Hospital Waterford, thus keeping to the forefront of good clinical practice guidelines.

Dr. Quann also has extensive training and experience in pre-hospital emergency care, and is the co-founder and clinical lead for the Lismore Community First Response Programme, for which she was shortlisted to the final three nominees nationally in the Community Category of the Volunteer Ireland Awards in December 2013.

The General Practice surgery at the Lismore Clinic will provide all the usual medical services normally provided by GPs, such as diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic medical problems in adults and children, routine screening, antenatal and preventative care. In addition to these services, Dr. Quann is also fully trained and experienced in a variety of specialist areas.

Dr. Quann has specialist training & qualifications in dermatology (the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions) and in minor surgery, and is therefore able to carry out various procedures at the surgery, such as suturing of minor lacerations, skin biopsies, and removal of moles, sebaceous cysts, skin tags, and excision of ingrown toenails, which might otherwise require a referral to a dermatology or surgical clinic with the associated prolonged waiting time. She also has specialist training & certification in musculoskeletal injury management and is experienced in treating sports injuries and administering joint injections. In addition to the usual Women’s Health & Family Planning services, Dr. Quann also provides Mirena coil, Copper Coil & Implanon removal & insertion.

Integrated medicine, which combines conventional medicine with various other approaches to health care (such as nutritional therapy, physical therapy or counselling), is becoming increasingly popular. It is estimated that at least 40% of the population use one or more forms of complementary healthcare, and most people combine these with conventional medicine, rather than choosing one or the other exclusively. Working as part of a multidisciplinary healthcare practice will provide patients with an opportunity to combine conventional medical care with various other approaches if they so choose, potentially providing a more comprehensive and holistic approach to health care.

If you would like any further information about the new Medical Practice at the Lismore Clinic, or if you would like to make an appointment from April 2nd onwards, please telephone the clinic on 058 53200
