We are currently dedicating Wednesday afternoons in the practice to covid vaccinations (Oxford/AstraZeneca). The pace at which we can do these is entirely dependent on the supply we receive. Please be patient and do not call the practice to ask when you’ll be vaccinated as we will contact you individually as soon as we have a vaccine for you.
Patients aged 65-69 will be vaccinated outside of the practice (with the Pfizer vaccine), rather than in our surgery. Visit HSCNI’s get vaccinated page to book. If this applies to you please take this opportunity now.
We now have a Facebook page where we can post any updates or announcements – please like, share and follow us!
Thank you to all our patients for your continued co-operation during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Having moved to a system of telephone triage/consultations, appointment booking online and appointment booking at the reception desk both remain suspended.
