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

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