 Electronic Prescriptions

We are now able to offer our patients the ability to have their presecriptions issued electronically to the Pharmacy of their choice.  This will mean you can go directly to the Pharmacy to collect your prescription without the need to first collect a paper copy from the Surgery.  The attached leaflet explains this in more detail but if you have any queries, do not hesitate to contact your chosen Pharmcy or the Surgery.  For more information click here


Don't go to the hospital Emergency Department (ED) unless you are advised to or have a serious or life-threatening condition

Did you know, lots of conditions can be treated yourself or by your GP Surgery?

Always contact your GP Surgery first - If we are closed and you have a problem or just need some advice - call the Out of Hours Service on 111

If you need a referral to hospital, the GP arranges this for you - not the hospital

CALL US ON 01202 587111 


The Doctors at Holdenhurst Road work extremely hard; most are here for 10+ hours a day and as a general rule will have anything from 40 to 70 patient contacts during their day. Please help them to help you.

Some interesting statistics have been published by the GPC of Northern Ireland [Feb 2015] on GP workload data.

This looks at data for 2013/4 compared to 2003/4:-

 1. Consultation rates have increased by 63%

2. Acute prescriptions rates have increased by 28%

3. Repeat prescription rates have increased by 41%

4. Lab tests results have increased by 216%

5. GP Administrative work has increased by 115%

6. Total patient contacts have increased by 66%

 This would mean, on an average day, a GP would expect to have:

 47 consultations (inc home visits and telephone consultations),

  • deal with 35 lab results, and
  • "sign" 172 prescriptions.

Please try and help by observing a few of the following points:

  • Please do not ask for immediate or urgent appointments for something that can safely wait or is of a non-urgent nature
  • Before contacting the Doctors, please consider contacting the local Pharmacy for advice or over the counter medicine for minor ailments of refer to the section later in this book
  • If you cannot make your appointment please tell us so it can offered to someone else
  • Please understand that immediate clinical care will always come before requests for forms etc to be completed.
  • Please appreciate that the Doctors have to prioritise the work they do and they will deal with your request as and when using their clinical judgement it is appropriate and as soon as they possibly can.
