Aberfoyle Medical is still open.

A doctor at a Derry medical practice has reassured patients it is still open.
Aberfoyle Medical Practice has closed its doors and is asking patients to ring in be assessed by phone due to the risk of Covid-19.
"Patients with routine and urgent medical concerns will be triaged by telephone prior to being offered a consultation with a doctor," said Dr Neil McKeon. 
"Doctors will only see patients as needed after telephone assessments and all social worker, physio and mental health appointments will be carried out as telephone consultations.

"Patients with appointments for the treatment room will be contacted before their appointment and if they are flu like symptom free will be seen.

"We are asking patients not to attend unless they have been told to by their GP."

Dr McKeon continued: "If you require a prescription please order online or place requests in the box provided outside our front door, all medication reviews are now suspended until further notice.  

"We would ask people to please nominate a pharmacy to collect it on their behalf so they don't have to visit the pharmacy."
