Updating your information



From Monday 17th February 2020, please note the new times for

telephone triage (emergency appointments & antibiotics) will be:


                          Monday - Friday 8.30am-10.30am

You will be asked for brief details regarding your emergency, along

with a contact number of your choice  upon which the emergency

GP on call will return your call.

Missed appointments and non-attendance

Unfortuantely, due to the numbers of missed appointments, the

Practice has been forced to introduce a strict Did not attend


This means that should you miss 2 or more appointments in a

period of 6 months you WILL be sent a warning letter.  

You may also be removed from the Practice list if you repeatedly

miss appointments despite warnings.


Please ensure that you attend your appointments or at the very

least cancel those you are unable to attend - appointments need to

be cancelled with at least 1 hours notice.


Tips to remember you appointment date include: putting note on

fridge, adding reminder to phone, writing in diary etc



From Tues 1st October 2019, Practice opening hours will be as follows:

8.30am-1.00pm & 2.00pm-5.00pm

Closed daily 1.00pm-2.00pm


We appreciate your co-operation with these changes


Planned closures

Practice Area

Please be aware that, due to issues concerning patient safety, the

Practice operates within a strict patient boundary.

This means that we are only able to accept / retain patients who reside

within a set area.


Should you move to an address not included in this area, you will

unfortunately be asked to find a new doctor.


Please note that this is Practice Policy and standard procedure, as

agreed with both Health & Social Care Board and BSO.  


Unfortunately there can be no exceptions to this policy nor can it be judged on an individual patient to patient basis.



Message from Dr Mahood

Wednesday 31st July 2019


Dear patients,

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to look after you all in Cliftonville Medical Practice over the past 16 years.

Unfortunately and with great regret I have had to leave the practice due to illness.

I leave you in the very capable hands of my colleague Dr Emma-Sue Curran and the rest of the staff.

Wishing you all the very best for the future,


Yours sincerely,

Dr Kathy Mahood
