OTC (Over the Counter) Medications 

Following guidance from the Health & Social Care Board the Doctors will no longer be prescribing medication for minor symptoms and will instead refer you to your local Pharmacy to purchase these items.

Did Not Attend (DNA) Appointments - August  2018 Total 72

72 Patients did not attend for their appointment with the GP or Nurse in August 2018. In the current climate and increasing pressure for appointments it is important that patients who cannot keep their appointment make the effort to cancel it and give as much notice as possible so that this appointment can be give to another patient who is waiting on an appointment.  

You can now also do this ONLINE.  

The Practice has implemented a more rigorous DNA policy and frequent offenders will eventually be removed from the Practice list.  This has helped to almost halve our DNA appointments if just over one year but 72 wasted appointments in one month is still unacceptable.

***NB: We welcome feedback on our services and how to improve them but if you want to email us via the website about something you are not happy about and state that you do NOT want to be contacted then your points will be taken on board but you will not be able to be informed of the outcome of your email!
