Welcome to our website

The surgery of Fethard-on Sea is located on the Fethard to New Ross road about a half a mile before the village. The late Dr. Stephen Cox commenced General Practice in 1954 and practiced single-handedly until his retirement in 1992 when the practice was taken over by Dr John Cox. We are a teaching practice associated with the South Eastern Vocational Training Programme and also regularly take medical students from the RSCI and TCD Medical Schools.  Dr John Cox has a special interest in Cardiovascular disease prevention and minor surgery.

In 2006 a major practice development was carried out and the surgery now consists of five consultation rooms, all fitted with modern up to date medical equipment. In addition, we are a paperless practice and are electronically linked to the Laboratory at Waterford Regional Hospital.

Our Aim:

  • To provide you and your family with the best possible service and medical care.
  • To provide friendly, personal and effective health care. We are patient centred in our approach and deliver evidence based medical care. We endeavour to treat all our patients fairly, to meet their needs in an appropriate way and as promptly as possible.
  • Our staff are trained to treat everyone courteously and we would ask that patients help us by being polite when they contact us at the surgery and at reception.


Our website is designed to inform about us and the services that we offer. You can find out more information about health issues through our practice information leaflet and links.
