COVID-19 - VACCINATIONS

Vaccination is the most important thing you can do to protect your community against serious illnesses.  When enough people get vaccinated, it’s harder for a disease to spread to those who can’t have vaccines.

 

We know many people are interested in the COVID-19 vaccination and want to assure you that we are working through a priority list set by the Department of Health.  Please do not contact your GP about getting the vaccine. We will contact patients in order of priority. 

 

All Patients  in the following groups can contact the vaccination centre to have their Covid 19 vaccination by booking online @ https://vaccinations.covid-19.hscni.net/booking or phone 03002007813

  • Anyone who is 16 years of age by 31/3/2021 who has received a recent shielding letter (Clinically Extremely Vulnerable)
  • Anyone who is between 65 and 69 years of age
  • Anyone who is a Carer and is aged 18 and over by 31/3/2021

NEW TEXTING SERVICE NOW AVAILABLE

New Practice Boundary:

To provide the best care for our existing patients we have decided to  reduce our practice radius to 5.5 miles of the surgery.

We will only accept applications from new patients who live within this radius

Any existing patients who CHANGE address to a new address outside the radius will also be asked to re-register with a GP surgery closer to them.

 

 

When We Are Closedtelephone_brown

The practice is covered for emergencies out-of-hours (e.g. bank holidays, after 17:30 in the evening and at weekends) by Dalriada Urgent Care. In an emergency this service can be contacted by phoning 028 2566 3500 and giving the details to a receptionist. A doctor/nurse will then call you back.  Please remember this service is for emergencies only.

On Wednesdays from 13:00 to 18:00 patients should contact Kilrea Health Centre for urgent medical requests on 028 293 30222.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath are examples of what constitutes an emergency.
