The Health Centre20 Church StreetIrvinestown, BT94 1EHTel: 028686 21212
We continue to run a telephone triage system in the morning and afternoon where patients can avail of a telephone consultation with a GP (or video consultation where appropriate). Only where it is deemed necessary and safe, a patient may be asked to come into the surgery for a face to face consultation with a GP who will be wearing PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).
The telephone slots for the GPs can only be made by a patient via a telephone call to the reception staff. No patient is currently being allowed access to the Health Centre unless an appointment has been arranged. To help maintain minimal footfall and social distancing in line with Government guidelines, patients must telephone the Health Centre rather than present in person.
Treatment room appointments are available, patients must contact reception to arrange an appointment to be seen.
Please be advised that when attending the Health Centre for an appointment you must wear a mask.
If possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you require a home visit.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
Access for disabled persons is through the double doors at the main entrance or at the specially adapted entrance at the back of the health centre.
All services provided by the health centre are on ground floor level and are clearly signposted.
There is disabled parking space to the rear of the building.
