When contacting the practice you will hear the follwing message:
This is The Family Practice Antrim Health Centre please chose from one of the following options:
If you wish to speak to a GP the practice operates a daily telephone diary.
The diary opens at 8:30 to 10 am but the diary can be booked up very quickly and therefore the diary will close before 10 am. We would advise you to book your call early.
There are days when the reception staff are instructed to book emergency calls only and this happens when the GP's have a meeting at lunchtime.
The doctors' days are fully booked and the receptionists have been instructed not to disturb doctors' consultations with non-urgent calls.
It is very helpful when requesting a call back that you give the reception staff as much information as possible so the GP can prioritise the calls.
Please keep your contact details up-to-date if you change your mobile or home telephone numbers remember to let us know.
You do not require a doctor's sick line for any illness lasting
seven days or less.
Your employer may ask for a self-certificate which can be got at the unemployment office or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days you will need a sick line from your GP. The GP will need to either see you or speak to you by telephone.
It is the GP who decides how long you need to be off work.
When you are able to go back to work you don't need a signing off line as the sick lines give you your back to work.
