Scotch Quarter Practice
Hello and welcome to our website. We’ve packed it full of useful information in a very easy to use format with the added benefit of several online functions.
If you’re new to the area, have a look at our opening times, come in and see us so that we can assist you to complete the relevant Registration Forms (HSCR1) and make a new patient review appointment for you with one of our Doctors.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to new Government legislation all new patients registering with a GP must provide Photographic evidence and other supplementary evidence which can be viewed using the following link -
BENZODIAZEPINES AND Z DRUGS
Following recent well publicized concerns with regard to the dangers of these drugs and updated guidance from the Health and Social Care Board the Practice is taking part in a Benzo/Z Reduction Scheme. This is a Carrickfergus wide scheme involving both Practices and is also happening in other Practices and towns across the Province.
Letters will be sent out to patients in the next couple of weeks giving more details of the Reduction Programme and available support to patients involved.
We would ask for your support in our attempts to reduce the risks involved in long term use of these drugs and that you do not contact your GP if you receive a letter. Details of any support required during the programme will be given to you in the letter you receive.
OTC (Over the Counter) Medications -
Following guidance from the Health & Social Care Board the Doctors will no longer be prescribing medication for minor symptoms and will instead refer you to your local Pharmacy to purchase these items.
We appreciate your co-operation in this new policy.
