Search for a Registered Doctor

You can check here to verify that a doctor is registered to practise medicine in Ireland, and you can also check a doctor’s qualifications through this facility. By law all doctors have to register with the Medical Council in order to practise, and doctors can only practise independently as specialists if they have specialist registration.

You can search by last name, first name, or registration number. As doctors may be registered under a different name (e.g. a married name) or spelling (e.g. McCarthy, MacCarthy, Mac Cárthaigh) a record may sometimes not be found. However, a doctor whose details are not found by this search method may still be registered.
