Covid-19 Vaccination Update June 2021
All patients over the age of 40 who have not yet had a Covid-19 vaccine will be contacted by a member of the surgery in the next few weeks. Please do not ring the surgery.
If you are over the age of 18, you can book your Covid-19 vaccine with the trust. You can do this online here or by calling the booking line 0300 200 7813.
Community pharmacies are also offering the Covid-19 vaccine. Please click here for details on eligible groups and how to book an appointment.
Carers are also advised to book through the trust however, you must register as a carer first. Please email the local care co-ordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 028 375 66284.
Please be assured that we are working as fast as we can but extra calls regarding the vaccine are putting a tremendous amount of pressure on all staff.
You can find all the latest guidance on coronavirus in Northern Ireland by visiting the NI Direct website.
Appointment Update May 2021
The surgery is currently extremely busy. Please can we ask patients to contact the surgery EARLY in the day if they require an appointment with a GP.
Routine telephone calls will now only be accepted before 12.00pm.
Some patients require a face-to-face appointment with the GP, as decided by the doctor during a telephone consultation. These generally take place in the afternoon, meaning that we will now only be able to accept URGENT telephone calls in the afternoon.
Thank you for your understanding.
