CORONAVIRUS COVID-19

Due to the current pandemic the Practice has changed the way it works, in line with Public health Guidance in NI.

We are mindful of the impact these changes may have.

These changes have been necessary, in order to minimise risk to both patients and staff.

We have restricted access to both our sites, because of the need for social distancing to minimise the spread of the disease.

WE WANT TO REASSURE PATIENTS THAT WE REMAIN OPEN DURING OUR NORMAL WORKING HOURS AND THAT WE ARE WORKING HARDER THAN EVER TO ENSURE THAT PATIENTS RECEIVE APPROPRIATE CARE AND ADVICE, AS SAFELY AS POSSIBLE.

We are keeping the situation, our response, and our delivery of services under constant review.

WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR CONTINUED APPRECIATION AND UNDERSTANDING.

NEED MEDICAL ADVICE?

 Patients requiring medical advice should contact the surgery by telephone in the first instance.  Our receptionists will ask you some questions, in order to best direct your query to the most appropriate clinician.  

We will be able to offer appropriate clinical advice remotely via telephone or Video consultation. If deemed necessary by the clinician, patients may be invited for a face-to-face consultation with a doctor or nurse.

PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE PRACTICE WITHOUT AN AUTHORISED APPOINTMENT

PATIENTS WITH COVID SYMPTOMS

PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY IF YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM ANY SYMPTOMS THAT MAY BE ATTRIBUTABLE TO COVID.
