NHS Data Sharing
A new national data opt-out model launched in May 2018, replaces the previous 'type 2' opt-out. The new model provides an online facility for individuals to opt-out from the use of their confidential data for purposes other than direct care i.e. for the purposes research and health service planning.

Merge of South Grange & Lagan Surgery
As from April 2018 South Grange Medical Centre and Lagan Surgery have merged. Both surgeries still operate from their own sites, but with the opportunity for patients to be seen at either surgery.
The reason for this merge is to improve the quality and range of services provided for both surgeries, including access to appointments. Through merging both practices together we will achieve better use of space and also share expertise more effectively.
Patients attending the surgery will benefit from a wider access of appointment times during 8am-6pm and we offer extended hours on a Saturday for pre-booked appointments.
