Welcome to Drs McFerran, Cox, Treanor & Farrelly Practice

From 1st June 21 The practice is returning to  face-to-face appointments booked after telephone triage with a receptionist.

The GPs have directed Reception staff to ask all patients for an overview of their medical problem to help determine the best course of action to help them. 

If appropriate, you may booked with GP, first contact physio,   a senior mental health professional or  pharmacist.

 We are constantly updating and streamlining our systems in response to a rapidly evolving situation. 

Patients attending surgery

To ensure the safety of our patients, staff and GPs, you should NOT visit the surgery unless you have been told to by a member of Reception, a nurse or a GP.

We will continue to post sick lines out to your home if required.

If you are asked to attend the surgery, please arrive at your exact appointment time and not earlier for your own safety and that of others as we are trying to limit the number of patients in our waiting area at any one time.

Please wear a face covering before entering the building and sanitise your hands on arrival. 

If you are attending an appointment with the Practice Nurse, please wear clothing that will enable quick access to your arm so that she can conduct your vaccination, bloods or BP check quickly and efficiently.
