Affidea Ireland is delighted to announce ExpressCare Minor Injuries & Illnesses Walk-In Clinic in The Elysian in Cork as main sponsor of Blackrock National Hurling Club as part of a new three year agreement.
ExpressCare is open to everyone from 10am to 10pm, 365 days a year, in Cork and Dublin, to offer a modern, comfortable alternative to busy A&Es; significantly relieving the burden on local hospitals.
Promising fast turnaround times with no appointment or referral needed, ExpressCare is staffed with Emergency Department trained doctors and nurses who care for minor injuries such as fractures and sprains or cuts requiring stitches. ExpressCare aims to see patients within a one-hour turnaround time and children over one-year of age can attend.
PRO Seán Mac Caochlaoich said: “ExpressCare services a real need in the area and is the perfect partner with the Cork clinic conveniently located in The Elysian on Eglinton Street. Fast access and treatment allows our players to get back on the field as soon as possible, so we’re looking forward to working with such a world-class company.”
Affidea Country Manager Barry Downes commented: “We’re thrilled to sponsor Cork’s oldest and most successful hurling club. As medical partners, we are proud to support such an important part of the local community, ensuring players and spectators alike are guaranteed the attention they need with the best care on offer.”
David Corkery, former Ireland and Munster rugby player and Affidea Business Development Manager, added: “The club is a credit to everyone. I’m really looking forward to working with the teams and telling the local community all about our state-of-the-art facility in The Elysian, which allows players to be seen quickly and efficiently instead of waiting for hours in a busy and stressful A&E. Rockies abú!”
Patients are often referred to hospitals due to difficulty accessing diagnostic services, but ExpressCare offers rapid access with reports back to GPs within days. As Ireland’s leading diagnostic imaging provider with a network of 12 clinics across Ireland, Affidea provides X-rays, MRI, Ultrasound, CT and DXA scans in flagship scanning centres located onsite.
ExpressCare offers a complete patient pathway and has on-site consultant clinics, in disciplines such as physiotherapy, orthopaedics and plastic surgery; offering weekly clinics to follow up on any more serious injuries.
ExpressCare operates independently providing services to all patients who attend on a fee-for-service basis or, alternatively for patients with private health insurance with Laya Healthcare and Irish Life Health, ExpressCare is a covered benefit. They also offer a €50 discount for patients who present with a GP referral letter.
We’re thrilled to enter into a new 3 year partnership with this illustrious club. #AffideaExpressCare Minor Injuries & Illnesses Walk-In Clinic in The Elysian is the perfect alternative to busy A&Es. Come out to meet Business Development Manager and sports star @DavidCorkery3 👍🏻 https://t.co/rdhUeeJOgz
