Test Results

Patients should allow 4 working days for the results of routine bloods to be returned.  Results can be obtained by telephoning the reception after 2pm.

Home visits

Please request any home visits before 10am on the day required.  Home visits will be carried out at the discretion of the clinician, to those patients who are unable to attend the practice.  


Out of Hours cover

For non-emergency healthcare outside of surgery hours, please call Dalriada Urgent Care on: 028 2566 3500

In case of emergency, please call 999


Home visits

If you are too ill to attend the surgery, please request a home visit via the appointments telephone line. Our GPs will assess your symptoms over the phone prior to arranging a visit.

Please refrain from requesting a home visit unless absolutely necessary. This is to reduce the impact on other patients.


Telephone appointments

Our GPs are allocated timeslots throughout the week for these telephone appointments. Please speak with reception if you require an appointment with a specific doctor.


Disabled access

Our premises are fully accessible to the disabled. If you require any additional assistance, please ask at reception.


Text Message Service

The practice may send out appointments via sms message.  Please ensure that we have your current mobile number recorded on your medical record.


Diabetic clinic

We provide a full diabetes clinic on Tuesdays.  This should only be attended by annual appointment or specific request from your GP.


Smoking cessation

For free support and advice please request a starter pack from reception. We run weekly sessions and will provide you with all the support required to stop smoking.
