The centres are for clinical assessment following referral from your own GP.
They operate on an appointment only system and do not offer testing for Covid-19. The Centres, which opened their doors on March 30, are for the people who live in the Southern Trust area.
Current opening hours are, for Dungannon, 8am-6pm Monday to Thursday, and 8am to 10pm Friday Saturday and Sunday, and Banbridge, 8am-10pm Monday to Thursday, 8am-6pm Friday. (The Banbridge centre is currently closed on Saturday & Sunday).
Patients presenting with Covid-19 symptoms to their GP or the Urgent Care Out of Hours service (OOHs), are triaged and risk assessed.
When the person requires a face to face clinical assessment, the GP in the practice or OOHs will arrange an appointment at the COVID Primary Care Centre or through a home visit if possible.
Onward referral can be made to other primary or secondary Trust services as needed. The Centre works through a referral process from GP practices or OOHs and therefore this is not a “walk in” service.
