The Outpatients Department is situated on the ground floor to the rear of the main Hospital building. It can be accessed via Hatch Lane, the Accident and Emergency Department and the main Hospital building.

Patients need a REFERRAL LETTER from their General Practitioner (G.P.) in order to obtain an outpatient appointment.

Please instruct your G.P. to fax or post referral letters as this is the most efficient method of requesting appointments. There is no need to hand deliver your referral letters as this often causes a delay in processing. We accept referrals from other medical consultants and from the Accident and Emergency Department following assessment.

The letter should be addressed to:

The Appointments Office
Outpatients Department
Royal Victoria Eye and Ear Hospital
Adelaide Road
Dublin 2
