Please note we are currently experiencing GP staff shortages

We have advertised for two new GPs and despite our best efforts to date have not been able to fill the two posts available.  We will continue to try to recruit GPs.

There is a shortage of Doctors who want to work in General Practice in Northern Ireland and there are many vacancies at present for GPs in Practices.  We hope when the Northern Ireland Executive is up and running again that this issue will be addressed.

This is happening in many Practices across the Province and GP service provision is suffering

You may have heard reports in the press of General Practices having to close in some areas of Northern Ireland due to having no Doctors to provide appointments.

Due to our shortage of GPs we have had to adjust our appointment availability to allow the GPs who are here to cope with Patient demand safely and this has had an impact on the provision of routine appointments.  We are working hard to improve access to our services.

Our reception staff are giving you advice on how best to use the system and are not acting as a block to appointments, when they ask you questions it is because they have been asked by the GP to get as much information from you regarding your problem, this will allow the Doctor to deal more efficiently and appropriately with your request

Please bear with us in this difficult period we are doing our best with the resources available to us at present and hope that we can increase the number of routine appointments asap.
