The doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area. As a guide the boundary line towards Belfast is the "Finaghy Cross Roads" and the boundary line in Moira is the roundabout at the top of the village. The practice area excludes Aghalee, Edenderry, Ballynahinch, Dromara, Lower Ballinderry and part of Finaghy.
All new patients need to bring along their medical card, photographic ID and a recent utility bill. If you do not have a medical card you can complete a registration form. In addition all newly registered patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire which will help us to provide medical care whilst waiting for the full records to be forwarded from a former practice.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Please note that patients are registered with the practice and not an individual GP. For administrative reasons only will your medical card be issued in the name of one of the doctors. You can request to be seen by a specific doctor however this may result in a longer waiting time.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
In order to obtain a medical card you need to fill in an application form, which is called HS22X. This form is available in English and in a range of other languages. Please click on the respective links below to download the form in English and/or in translation.

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
