The Health and Social Care Board (HSCB) would advise patients in Northlands Surgery in Dungannon that from 1 April 2019 a new contractor (Drs Wray and Johnston) will take over the provision of General Medical Services.
From Monday the surgery will be provided from South Tyrone Hospital on B (ground) floor. Patients should go through the main entrance and there will be signage and also staff to direct patients accordingly.
A lot of work is ongoing to minimise any disruption to patients during this time of change.
Unfortunately the contract for the premises between the outgoing GPs and incoming GPs wasn’t able to be agreed and finalised for 31 March.
Therefore as an interim solution, to ensure GP services can continue to be provided from Monday, alternative premises had to be found yesterday, so unfortunately there wasn’t time to write to patients. However, letters will be in the post next week.
We would also advise patients that car parking is available in the South Tyrone Hospital site (with 300 car parking spaces across the hospital site).
Patients can either contact the surgery on the new number 028 37 565600, or if they ring the existing Northlands number their call will be automatically redirected from Monday morning.
We would apologise for the any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience.
