Additional Closures:


None at present

In cases of genuine medical emergency, please call:

Dalriada Urgent Care on 028 25 663500


To help reduce the potential spread of infection, we are advising all patients to phone before coming to the surgery.

When you ring us, our staff will ask you some questions to determine your condition. Some of these questions may include if you have a temperature or a cough.

These questions help us to determine the best action to take but also helps protect our staff and our vulnerable patients.

If appropriate, you may receive a call back from a GP or be given other relevant advice.

If you need a repeat prescription, please bear in mind that we are asking patients to collect this at their Pharmacy of choice and NOT come to the Health Centre.

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!











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.







You can receive the results of your tests between 11.00 am and 3.00 pm (Monday - Friday).   Contact us via the main telephone number (028 25 821551) and Press 3 for Results.
