Dalriada Urgent Care provides out of hours GP services to the population of the Northern sector of the Health and Social Care Board (HSCB).

The service operates from 4 main Primary Care Centres (PCC’s); Ballymena, Whiteabbey, Coleraine and Moneymore with services also available at Antrim Area Hospital and Mid Ulster Hospital, Magherafelt.

The service is delivered 6.00pm to 8am Monday to Friday, all weekends and Public Holidays.
Dalriada Urgent Care is available to provide services when your surgery is closed. We are not here to replace normal GP services but to deal with urgent problems that cannot wait until your own GP is available. If you need to contact us you should do so by telephoning us on 028 2566 3500. An operator will take your call. At very busy times your call may be placed in a queue.

The operator will take details of your call and pass these to an appropriate clinician who will contact you. The doctor/nurse will then be able to decide if advice is required or indeed if you need to visit one of our centres, or if one of our doctors needs to make a visit to your home. Please remember that home visits are for those who are too ill to travel to the centre and that inappropriate calls may deprive someone in more need of the service.
