Emergency department delays due to high demand

We are asking the public to only attend our emergency department in the case of an emergency. For non-urgent complaints, please contact your GP or for minor injuries you can attend our Mater Smithfield Rapid Injury Clinic.  

At our Mater Smithfield Rapid Injury Clinic, you will be treated by Mater Hospital nurses and doctors who specialise in emergency care. We offer fast assessment and treatment at the clinic and you do not need an appointment or a GP referral letter to attend. 

At our Mater Smithfield Rapid Injury Clinic we treat:
  • Sprains and strains
  • Broken bones
  • Wound infections
  • Minor burns and scalds
  • Minor head injuries
  • Insect and animal bites
  • Minor eye injuries


Our Annual Mater Hospital GP Study Day

We are delighted to invite GPs to attend the 2017 Annual Mater Hospital GP Study Day on Saturday 4 March.

All GP lectures and workshops will be held in the Catherine McAuley Education Centre and will run from 8:30am to 1pm on the day. Our lectures and workshops this year seek to address select core topics for daily clinical practice, and also will provide a good opportunity for GPs to meet some of the recently appointed Mater Consultants. 

If you are interested in attending our GP Study Day or have any queries regarding the day itself, please send an email to postgrad@mater.ie and we will be in touch.

Further information on the lectures and workshops is available in the below document:
