In order to manage the ever evolving Coronavirus outbreak and protect both staff and patients, the practice has made the decision to suspend all pre-booking of appointments. If you need to see a GP please telephone the surgery. The receptionist will ask you for some information before adding you to the Telephone Triage list. A GP will call you back as soon as possible - please ensure you have your phone with you to answer the call.
PLEASE DO NOT COME INTO THE SURGERY UNLESS YOU HAVE A PRE-ARRANGED APPOINTMENT. If you are not sure if you should attend or if your appointment is a routine check-up; your GP may be able to deal with this over the phone - please ask the receptionist.
Home Visits: In order to protect our patients from the spread of Coronavirus - your Doctor will assess home visit requests on case by case basis and will only make a home visit if absolutely necessary.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND SUPPORT AT THIS TIME
We are delighted to welcome two new GP's to our fantastic team at Ormeau Health Centre, Dr Susan McCrudden & Dr Claire Lowry
