Only registered patients of Clifden Medical Practice can avail of this.  If you are not currently a patient or if you have difficulty booking online call the surgery on 095-21224 or 21225 to make an appointment.

Pippo is an online patient booking portal that links directly to our GP’s practice management system in Clifden Medical Practice.

Your appointment will show as pending, and you will receive a confirmation text and email within minutes.

PARENTS – you can book appointments for your children by downloading the app and registering YOURSELF FIRST and then adding your child(ren) as DEPENDANTS. Please note that dependants in Pippo are children under 18 years.
