New patients can only be referred by their General Practitioner, another consultant or other healthcare provider who is treating them. Your GP or Consultant may submit the referral directly or may give you a letter to arrange your own appointment. Request for appointments should be submitted as below.

Public outpatient referrals

Your GP may send in an electronic referral directly via healthmail. This is the fastest method to submit referrals.  


Post the referral letter to

OPD Appointments,
Vascular Surgery Unit,
Tallaght University Hospital,
Dublin 24.


Letters are seen and prioritised within 3 days and a confirmation letter is sent to the patient and GP. If you have not heard anything within two weeks, you may telephone (01 414 2213) to check on the progress of your appointment. However, unless the appointment has already been made, the staff answering the phone may not be able to give you an immediate response.


Urgent referrals may be faxed directly to the Department of Surgery office at 01 414 2212 (marked Vascular Surgery Referral)


If you wish to clarify details of an existing appointment, change the date or time, or cancel an appointment you no longer require, please call the appointments desk at (01) 414 2000. If you have another specific query, the staff in the Department of Surgery office may be able to help you on (01) 414 4017.


If you have a doctors letter and you wish to submit this by email, please contact the office by telephone.
