Priory and Springhill GP Practice

31st January 2023

The South Eastern Trust has been asked by the Department of Health to temporarily take over the running of the Priory and Springhill GP Practice in Holywood and Bangor, following the resignation of the current GP partners.

From tomorrow, Wednesday February 1st the Trust will provide General Medical services to those patients registered with this practice.

The Trust will work closely with the Department of Health to secure the required level of GP cover as quickly as possible, to provide GP services and minimise disruption.

From the outset the Trust will be able to maintain urgent GP consultations, palliative care, children’s vaccinations and many of the clinics and services provided by the treatment room. The routine repeat prescription service will also be maintained.

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

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

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

During the initial period, if there is a delay in returning your call and your condition is deteriorating, please ring the surgery again.

In a medical emergency patients should ALWAYS phone 999.
