From Monday 19th June Ballyclare Group Practice will be changing its appointments system. From that date forwards all appointments will be bookable on the day and there will be no advance bookings. Patients will be able to discuss and arrange appointments with their preferred GP on the day and it is hoped that this will improved both access and continuity of care.
The use of face masks is still recommended in public places and we would encourage everyone to wear one while in the medical centre. There are many clinically vulnerable patients who come to the medical centre and it is important to provide them with as much protection as possible.
We are expecting to be offering a booster vaccination to patients aged over 75 in late May/early June. Eligible patients will be contacted.
