Priory and Springhill GP Practice Update

10th March 2023

The South Eastern HSC Trust was asked by the Department of Health to temporarily take over the running of the Priory and Springhill GP Practice in Holywood and Bangor from 01 February 2023.

The Trust is working closely with the Department of Health to secure the required level of GP cover as quickly as possible, to try and minimise any disruption.

The Trust is now moving towards resuming routine GP services at the practice and is starting gynae, baby and minor surgery clinics, alongside GP consultations, palliative care, children’s vaccinations and services provided by the treatment room.

We would ask for your continued patience and understanding in the coming weeks.

Please consider contacting your community pharmacy for help with minor illness or consult the NI Direct Symptom Checker or the Children’s Symptom Checker  for advice.

Patients should continue to contact their practice in the usual way.

If there is a delay in returning your call and your condition is deteriorating, please ring the surgery again but in the event of a medical emergency patients should ALWAYS phone 999.
