For urgent / acute medical problems, a doctor is available in our Blackrock surgery from 8am to 8.45am sharp on a "walk in" basis. This service is available only to registered patients of the practice.

Outside the above "walk in" service, we operate strictly on an appointment only basis. Our normal surgery hours at Blackrock are Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. Phone 021 4892996 for an appointment during these hours.

Our Blackpool surgery also operates strictly on an appointment only basis. Appointments are currently available every Monday and Thursday from 11am to 1pm. The Blackpool office can also be contacted every day between 11am and 1pm on 021 4501641.

We close for lunch from 1 to 2pm. For emergencies only during lunchtime, a message may be relayed to a doctor via the Practice mobile: 089 4962733.

Outside our normal surgery hours, patients should contact SouthDoc on 1850 335999.

Other Information:

Appointments can be made either over the phone or in person. Every effort will be made to facilitate any request for a particular doctor and/or a particular time. However, this is not always possible and as close an alternative as is available will be offered.

In the event of a request for an urgent same day appointment it may not be possible to see the doctor of your choice but you will be offered an appointment to see the first doctor with availability remaining on that day.

We offer 15 minute appointments for all patients and aim to keep delays to a minimum. If you think you may need a longer appointment please advise the Receptionist at the time of booking. Additionally, if you require more than one person to be seen please advise at the time of booking so that a suitable appointment can be arranged.
