When We Are Closedclosed_sign

We are part of Western Urgent Care – a group of local doctors providing out-of-hours service.

Western Urgent Care operates from Tyrone County Hospital, Omagh. It will deal with urgent medical conditions or emergencies outside normal surgery hours – i.e. from 18:00 – 08:30 Monday to Friday and 24 hours on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Patients should phone 028 7186 5195 or the usual surgery number. There will be a recorded message giving information about medical care out of hours and the phone number of the new service.

Depending on the seriousness of the condition the doctor may:

  1. Give advice over the phone.
  2. Ask the patient to attend Tyrone County Hospital.
  3. Send an ambulance, either the usual ambulance or the cardiac ambulance.
  4. Advise attendance at Casualty.
  5. Arrange a home visit.

Western Urgent Care is not A Drop-in Centre

For reasons of security and good service please phone first to discuss with the doctor if you need to attend and if so, to arrange an appointment.

 

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
