BE AWARE OF BOGUS CALLERS!

 

We have been alerted that bogus callers have been attempting to obtain bank details or try to sell products to patients, using the name of the patient's Health Centre.

 

Please be aware that our staff will NEVER contact you to ask you personal financial details nor will we try to sell anything to our patients.

 

We are here to provide health care to you.

 

If you are contacted at home and are suspicious of the nature of the call - please contact the Practice Manager to report this.

Out of Hours Arrangements:

 

Any patient requiring a doctor when the surgery is closed is advised to telephone 028 25 663500.  This will put you through to a service known as Dalriada Urgent Care which has centres based in Ballymena and Moneymore.  This service is a co-operative between all the doctors in your local area.

 

When you telephone this dedicated number you will be asked to give the reasons for your call.  The doctor will then decide whether to advise you, ask you to visit the duty centre, or make a house call.  It is for the doctor to decide whether a house call is necessary and he/she reserves the right to refuse home visits.

 

Please note - this is an emergency service only and if possible you should wait until the next morning’s surgery to see the doctor.  You should not attend the “out of hours” centre without telephoning them first!

 

 

 

IN THE CASE OF AN EMERGENCY

 

DIAL 999 IMMEDIATELY

 

 

 

 

Home Visits

 

Please only request a home visit if you are too ill to attend the surgery.  Such calls should be requested before 10.00am to allow the doctors to plan their visiting.  Requests for genuine emergency visits during surgery hours will be accommodated at all times.
