Please note that Loughview are now operating a telephone triage system and it is no longer possible to book future appointments. Please phone the surgery, where a receptionist will check your contact details and take brief details of what your call is about. A doctor will then phone you and will either advise you over the phone or ask you to attend in person.
We are currently trialling video triage with some patients using smartphone technology.
Please note that if you have a sudden onset dry cough, high temperature or loss of sense of smell or taste - you SHOULD NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY.
If you are asked by the doctor to attend the surgery, please come unaccompanied, wear a face mask if you have one and ring the bell. If you are early for your appointment - please wait in your car.
Other options you may consider:
Minor Injuries Department (MIU) - open 9.00-5.00 Monday to Friday. Please note that patients must phone ahead before attending. Conditions MIU will not treat are:-
- Head Injuries

MIU will also not treat children under 5 years old.
There is also a Minor Ailments Service available at local chemists that deal with a range of self-limiting conditions. Please check with your local pharmacy for further details.
The practice gained the status of a training practice in 1994 and continues to train GP Registrars on a regular basis. You may be asked for permission for a Registrar to be present at your consultation but can of course decline.
