When We Are Closedclosed_sign

Outside surgery opening times patients requiring emergency medical care should telephone Dalriada Urgent Care (DUC) on 028 2566 3500. Please use the Out-of-Hours Service responsibly and consider whether the problem can wait for the practice to reopen.

Except in cases of emergency, please reserve consultations for normal surgery hours. Inappropriate use of the Out-of-Hours service may mean that seriously ill people will experience a delay in receiving the emergency medical help needed.

There is no casualty service offered at the Health Centre. Patients with suspected fractures should go directly to the Minor Injuries Unit at Whiteabbey Hospital or the Emergency Department at Antrim Hospital for assessment.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
