Welcome to Dr A Comiskey & Partners Medical Practice
The surgery is open from 8.00 am – 6.00 pm Monday to Friday. Consultations are available throughout the day. We are closed at weekends and most bank Holidays. When we are closed contact NHS 24 on 111.
As we move into winter– hope you are all keeping warm. While COVID is still around – the advice has now changed and you are no longer required to wear a face covering in general practice and hospital settings. Certain patients will have had their COVID / flu vaccination letter – please remember that while these are being administered in various different settings – your appointment must be booked or re-arranged through the number on the letter. PLEASE DO NOT PHONE YOUR GP SURGERY AS WE CANNOT CHANGE OR MAKE APPOINTMENTS. GPs are still operating a telephone consultation service in the first instance – this is a good opportunity for the GP to assess the patient over the phone and obtain as much information as possible – however please be assured that if the doctor feels he/she needs to see you they will bring you down to the surgery. Our access appointments system for GPs is excellent and we appreciate your patience with our hardworking reception staff. If you wish to speak to the GP you can do so by telephoning our reception team at the surgery – DO NOT email through our clinical mailbox for an appointment as we cannot process your request this way. Please continue to ensure our reception team have up to date contact details for you and a brief description on why you want to speak to the GP is always helpful
We continue to operate a sign posting system to ensure you get the care you require from the correct health professional. This signpost guide is available below for your information in the first instance.

The practice recognises the importance of medical education both within the team and to those undergoing training programs. These will be our doctors and primary health care workers of the future. For many years we have been committed to this and have reached and maintained the high standards set down for training practices. We always have a number of qualified doctors working at the practice undergoing further training to be General Practitioners and also other medical specialties. We are grateful to our patients for understanding the importance of and supporting us in this.
