GP Electronic Link (GPEL)

GPEL is an electronic reporting system to GP's and other clinics.

Results from Biochemistry, Haematology  and Immunology are reported electronically to subscribed GPs 4 times daily at 07:00hrs, 11:15hrs, 16:00hrs and 17:00hrs. Microbiology reports are currently delayed by 7 days.

To subscribe to the service please contact Mary Sheehan, Pimary Care Unit, HSE at 056-7784112 or by e-mail at

GPs who have already been set up on this link should notify the Primary Care unit HSE SE in the event of changes in medical personnel or practice location. The GP unit will then notify the relevant laboratory personnel so that changes can be made to the electronic link without any interruptions in service. Notifications of any such changes sent directly to the laboratory may result in loss or interruption to the electronic link.
