Members of the public are being encouraged to choose well, and attend the health and care setting that is appropriate for their condition. For example, the Minor Injuries and Illnesses Unit in Ramsey can treat a broad range of conditions, Community Pharmacies operate the Minor Ailments Scheme, and some eye conditions can be treated under the Minor Eye Conditions Scheme (MECS) which is currently provided by Specsavers. For dental emergencies patients can access their own dentist or, if you do not have a dentist currently, you can contact the Community Dental Service. There are also a number of options for mental health support. You can find out more about all of these options on our signposting webpages: https://www.gov.im/categories/health-and-wellbeing/signposting/
MEDS (Manx Emergency Doctor Service) will be open and operating from 6pm to provide urgent care. Patients are reminded that MEDS is not a drop-in service and if they need to speak to a doctor about any urgent issues that cannot wait until their GP practice is open again, they should phone MEDS on 650355. Please note that MEDS will not be able to make any routine appointments, request test results or order repeat prescriptions; such requests will need to wait until your GP Practice is open again. Anyone who thinks they have a life- threatening emergency should phone 999 and ask for the Ambulance Service.

There is ramped access to the surgery for wheelchair and pushchair users, or for those patients who find stairs challenging. We also have a wheelchair for patient use should this be required. Patients are reminded that this is used at their own risk and that the surgery holds no responsibility for any injury or accident caused during its use.
