Welcome to The Archway Surgery Online
The overall aim of our GP surgery is to provide our patient population with a personal health service of the highest quality which is responsive to patients’ needs and expectations, which reflects wherever possible the latest clinical, organisational and economic advances relevant to primary care.
The Archway Surgery is an established Armagh GP Practice having been part of Armagh Health Centre for many years. We moved to our new premises in November 1999 and we are delighted to be able to offer our patients provision of General Medical Services in very pleasant surroundings.
This surgery website is used to present all our patients with up to date news and information about our practice. We will keep it current with any developments or other details that we feel are relevant to you. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like. We can use your ideas to improve our online services and further develop the content of this site.
Dr Knipe's retirement
After 32 years of service in General Practice Dr Charles Knipe retired on 31 July 2012. We are sure patients will want to join with the staff in wishing Dr Knipe a long, happy and healthy retirement. Dr Knipe's patients do not need to re-register as patients are registered with the Practice rather than a particular doctor.
We would also like to extend a warm welcome to our new GP Partner, Dr Alan Glendinning who joined the Practice in April 2013.
