Christmas & New Year Holiday Arrangements

We have signed up with the Health and Social Care Board to provide a Winter Pressures and Demand Management Plan.  This means we will have a reduced number of routine appointments and an increased number of urgent appointments available over the holiday period.  We will also suspend our Wednesday afternoon closure and remain open at lunch times for the remainder of the week after each holiday.
