A full appointment system is in operation for routine appointments.
Emergency cases take priority at all times.
Surgery Telephone Number:
- Lurgan (028) 3832 4591 (3 lines)
When you arrive at Surgery to keep your appointment please remember to check in using the automated check-in board or at reception.
Patients must notify us the day before their appointment should they not be able to attend by ringing our reception team on 028 3832 4591. You may download and view our Did Not Attend Policy (DNA) for further information.
Our Surgery is taking part in a scheme to enable you to see a doctor or a nurse as soon as possible when you phone for an appointment - find out more >>
Appointments to see the Doctor, or for any of the clinics may be made by telephoning or by calling at reception desk. Where possible, for non-urgent appointments, please phone or call personally at less busy times through the day i.e. after 3.00pm, thus keeping telephone lines and staff free for the more urgent requests and booking house calls.
Patients requiring an appointment for an urgent medical problem during surgery time are asked to telephone to be assessed by our system of triage. The receptionist
will take a contact phone number and the triage doctor will phone you back to assess how best to deal with your particular problem. This may be an emergency or same day appointment, an appointment within 24 hours, a routine appointment, a prescription, simple advice or onward referral e.g. to A&E.
GP appointments within 2 working days
The practice will endeavour to provide appointments, where appropriate, within 2 working days (48 hour access appointments).
However, please note that these appointments:
- May not be with the GP of your choice
- Are not for non-clinical matters e.g. repeat sick lines, DLA forms, insurance forms, medicals etc.
- Are not for routine review of chronic conditions e.g. high blood pressure, diabetes etc.
Emergency cases will continue to be seen on a same day basis assessed by a GP on the triage system.
