Welcome to the Ballyward Surgery website.

The surgery will be closed on Friday 12th July 2019.    Please ensure you order your repeat prescriptions in good time allowing at least 48hours before collection.

Reminder - we have online ordering for your repeat medicines which is our preferred way for you to order - please ask at reception for your first time unique log in so you can bypass the phone system.

When the Surgery is closed, please contact the GP Out of hours for the Southern Trust area which is 028 3839 9201. For our patients living in the South Eastern Trust Area your number is 028 9260 2204.

Reminder to all patients: Please allow 48hrs (that's two full working days ) for repeat prescriptions to be issued.

We want to empower our patients to enable them to care for themselves and their loved ones for minor ailments. The Self Care forum website is designed for patients to access information on managing their symptoms themselves and advising when to seek medical help.

Depression

Anyone can get depressed.

Deciding that you need help can sometimes be the hardest step.

The PHQ-9 questionaire is an easy to use patient questionnaire that has been validated for use in Primary Care.

It is used by your doctor to monitor the severity of depression and response to treatment.

It can also be used to make a tentative diagnosis of depression.

You can click on the link below, complete the questionaire, print it out and bring it along to an appointment or send it via the website to the surgery directly
