Moneymore Medical Centre
Due to the rapid spread of COVID 19/coronavirus in the community, we must reduce face to face exposure in the medical centre to protect patients and staff alike.
The medical centre is a HIGH RISK AREA where vulnerable patients are at HIGH RISK OF EXPOSURE.
Building doors are closed until further notice and all prebooked appointments are cancelled.
If you need essential medical attention please continue to contact us by phone. Following telephone triage with the doctor, if deemed to be necessary, an appointment will be arranged & you will be given directions for entering the building. Please phone between 8.30-10.30am if you feel you need a same day appointment.
Please order prescriptions via phone or online, allowing at least 2 working days for this service. Prescriptions will be sent directly to your designated pharmacy. Please protect community pharmacy staff and ensure someone who is well and not at risk collects your script for you.
Medical certificates/letters may be posted to your address. These can no longer be collected at the medical centre.
Ensure STRICT hand hygiene.

All At Risk patients will receive a letter with an allocated day and time slot for their flu vaccine, and we appreciate your co-operation.We are on a tight schedule to deliver large numbers, so please attend at your allocated time.
Thank you for your patience and understanding, we are working as hard as we can to deliver the flu vaccine programme.
