Laya Healthcare opens second Laya Health and Wellbeing Clinic in Dublin 

By Irish Pharmacist - 01st Apr 2024

Laya Healthcare launched this month a new Laya Health & Wellbeing Clinic in north Dublin, increasing the nationwide network to four clinics, and making it the fastest growing urgent care network in Ireland.

An investment of over €3million has gone into the 25,000 sq ft clinic with the capacity to treat around 30,000 patients each year. As part of the expansion, 25 new jobs will be created including clinical and administrative teams. And as with all Laya Health and Wellbeing Clinics, it is open 365 days a year from 10am-10pm.

The new clinic – located in the Swords Business Campus, Swords, Co Dublin – will offer a range of health and wellbeing services available to Laya Healthcare members and non-members. Services include walk-in urgent care for the treatment of minor injuries and illnesses where patients as young as 12 months+ will be seen within 60 minutes. Diagnostic imaging provided on-site is to include x-ray, MRI, ultrasound, and DEXA scan. 

Laya Healthcare has seen an increased demand for its clinics – located in Dublin 18, Limerick, and Galway – year on year since the first clinic opened in 2019, and in the past year alone footfall has increased by over 50 per cent, with minor injuries being the highest reason for clinic presentations.

The new clinic will provide:

  •    Access to the right care at the right time and Consultant-led urgent care for minor injuries and illness available to members and non-members alike – who will be seen within 60 minutes with an average out-of-pocket cost for members of €40
  •    A dedicated space for the range of wellbeing services including Physio, HeartBeat (available to members over the age of 12), and HealthCoach (available to members over the age of 18), with further plans for preventative health screening to be announced in 2024, available exclusively to Laya Healthcare members
  •    Faster access to world-class diagnostic imaging including MRI, x-ray, DEXA scan, and ultrasound
  •    For maximum ease and convenience, patients can be directly referred to an Orthopaedic Consultant in the Fracture Clinic located in the clinic for follow-up patient care.

Commenting on the major investment and expansion of the Laya Health and Wellbeing Clinic network, John McCall, Director of Claims and Provider Relations, said:

“Today is a momentous day as we mark the significant investment of €3 million in our Laya Health and Wellbeing Clinics, which is in response to the ongoing demand for our existing clinic services. Our clinic will offer members and non-members alike access to an array of healthcare services from preventative wellbeing all the way through to the treatment. Contributing to the ambition of Slaintecare, we firmly believe in the importance of delivering the right care at the right time, and that is why our clinics are open 365 days per year with consultant-led care delivered within one hour.”

Mother-of-three and Laya Health and Wellbeing Ambassador, Anna Daly, spoke about the convenience of the urgent care service and her experience to date.

“It is great to see the new Laya Health Wellbeing Clinic open in Swords today featuring state-of-the-art facilities, all of which are accessible to the local community. The Swords clinic makes it even easier to access consultant-led health and wellbeing services across Dublin and the surrounding areas. As a busy mum of three young boys, I have used the Laya Health and Wellbeing urgent care clinic services in the past and was so impressed with the treatment that was received. Knowing that a patient will be seen within 60 minutes offers huge peace of mind and convenience.”
