How Female Health Consultation works?

  • Book your Female Health Consultation through MyClinic
  • Complete a short pre-consult questionnaire so the GP understands your needs before your consult even starts
  • 20-minute in-depth consultation with a GP who specialises in female health
  • You’ll receive a post-consult plan to help you make the right next step

For a more personalised experience and to ensure you get the most from your consultation, we’ve worked closely with Centric Health to design a pre-consult questionnaire so that the GP understands your main concerns before your consult even begins. When it comes to your individual concerns, the GP will explain the factors to consider, treatment options available to you, and where and how to avail of them. They can also refer you for follow up in-person care if required, and guide you to other supports that often form part of your ideal treatment, such as nutrition, physiotherapy and mental health.

Key questions about Female Health Consultation

The Female Health Consultation service is a 20-minute video consultation dedicated to female health. Prior to the consultation you will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire which will be sent to the doctor ahead of your consultation. The service is not intended to replace your usual GP, it is designed to give you advice and support in the areas of menstrual health, contraception, fertility, menopause, and other areas of female health.

The Female Health Consultation service is provided by Centric Health GPs who have a special interest in women’s health. All of the GPs are registered with the Irish Medical Council and based in Ireland with extensive experience in women’s health.

The total cost of each Female Health Consultation is €80. However, Irish Life Health members on selected plans have 50% cover and therefore only pay €40. Irish Life Health pay the remaining €40 directly to Centric Health as part of the benefit. Payment by credit card or debit card is required at the time of booking and the appointment is not confirmed until online payment has been successfully made.

If you’ve chosen a video consultation, you will be sent a consultation link via email 30 minutes before your consultation start time. We recommend that you join the video link 5 minutes before your consultation start time.

If you’ve chosen a phone consultation, the GP will call you at your allocated time. Please note the GP may call you from a private number.

Irish Life Health members on select plans have cover for four Female Health Consultations per policy year.

The benefit is available to any member, regardless of age, who has a female health issue or concern. If the member is under 18, the policyholder on their policy will need to book their appointment on their behalf via the policyholder’s online account. For patients aged 16 or 17, the doctor may in some circumstances, require the patient to be accompanied by a parent or guardian during their video consultation. Patients under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian during the video consultation.

You can make an appointment directly with a Centric Health GP or with your own GP to for any follow-up face to face appointments, tests or screens that have been recommended.
