Welcome to Foyleside Family Practice

Update 18 August 2020:

As you will be aware Covid 19 is still very much with us and will be for the foreseeable future. We would like to reassure you that we are providing most services to our patients. We do however have to ensure your safety and ours and to be able to do this we ask that you ring in first. This can be done from 8.30am onwards each morning. PLEASE ring as early as possible that morning as once capacity is reached we will only be able to deal with urgent requests for the remainder of the day and you will be asked to ring back at another time. The GPs will be doing ALL consultations by telephone until further notice and you will ONLY be asked to attend if absolutely necessary . Practice receptionists will take a brief history of the problem that you are calling about so that they can divert you to the most suitable member of the team to help you with that problem. All information is treated confidentially. Please be patient while we navigate you safely through these uncertain times. Thank you for your cooperation.

Please see our online NOTICE BOARD on the left hand side of this page for a link to updated information regarding Coronavirus.

In all cases the NHS helpline 111 is available for advice and providing Sick Lines where necessary in relation to Coronavirus.

If you have travelled to at-risk areas, or you have had possible contact with a confirmed case of Coronavirus or you have a high temperature and a new or continuous cough, please do not come to the surgery. Stay at home and self isolate for 7 days. If you do not get better after 7 days or your symptoms worsen then phone 111. If you are still unsure contact reception on 028 71 306400.

If you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms (new advice as of 16 March).
