What We Do
Generation Health, Castleknock & Monkstown
Generation Health Medical Clinics was founded by Dr Nina Byrnes. The practice started as a GP clinic in Castleknock, Dublin 15. This has been enlarged with the addition of a second medical surgery in Monkstown, Co. Dublin. Nina is known as a hardworking, compassionate and trustworthy doctor. She is well respected among patients and medical colleagues alike. Nina has a deep understanding of the health concerns and needs of those attending a GP and what they want from their local clinic. Generation Health was set up with the mission of creating a true Family Clinic, one that provides first class, 21st century health services, for all generations, without compromising on attention to the dignity, wellbeing, quality of life and holistic care of every individual who attends us.
Here at Generation Health we want you to
We provide full General Practice services with GPs available in both Castleknock and Monkstown from 8am to 6pm. Appointments with our doctors are available early morning, lunchtime and evening in both surgerys. We are usually able to provide same day access for appointments with a choice of male and female doctors. A fully qualified mid wife and practice nurse with smears, immunisations and nurse appointments available from 8am to 6pm. 24 hour cover for nights, weekends and bank holidays. All our services are provided in convenient neighbourhood clinics providing seamless consistency of care.
The team here at Generation Health wants you to lead a long and healthy life so we place a strong emphasis on preventive healthcare both through health checks in the surgery and through the education of our patients, doctors and nurses alike.
Our Dr Nina Byrnes also promotes preventive health at a national level through her participation in radio, print and TV media. This committment to, and belief in the importance of preventative healthcare, is shared by all of the doctors in our Castleknock & Monkstown clinics.
Promoting a healthy lifestyle is very important to us here at Generation Health. You can reduce the risk of many cancers and diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, vascular disease, arthritis and liver disease by eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, not smoking and avoiding excess alcohol. All our team are happy to help and advise you with any lifestyle change you wish to undertake. We have a dietician who attends the clinic monthly. Good mental health is also actively promoted. We have close links with a number of local counselling services and have a visiting psychotherapist on site.
We are open Monday to Friday and are available for early morning and evening appointments upon request.
