Treatment Rooms

Treatment Room Nurses work in partnership with GP staff in Health Centres across Belfast. For patients registered with a GP the nurse can provide treatment, discuss health issues and refer to other Health Professionals as required. 

The treatment room nurses can carry out a wide range of Clinical Procedures and offer specialist advice on a variety of health and lifestyle issues.

Clinics and/or appointments may be provided for

  • Childhood Immunisations
  • Travel Vaccinations
  • Diabetes,
  • Well Woman or
  • Smears

Your GP can refer you to the treatment Room for these clinics or make you an appointment with the nurse following a consultation.

If you are temporary resident in an area where your GP is not situated, to receive Nursing & Medical care you must register with a Doctor in the Health Centre you want to use.

Health Promotion advice is available from the nursing staff and from a comprehensive range of leaflets on a variety of Health & Lifestyle issues.

How to Access the Service:

You can be referred to the Treatment Room for a clinical procedure/s by your GP, after a consultation. Following treatment or care the Nurse may give you a follow up appointment.

You may also make an appointment to see the nurse by speaking directly to your GP receptionist, either in person or by telephone.  You will need to give the receptionist details of what procedure you require so that he/she can make you an appointment of the appropriate length.

The Treatment Room Service is available to all patients registered with a GP in a Belfast Health Centre.  It is also available, to other patients who are not registered with a GP from the Health Centre under the following circumstances:

  • In an emergency
  • Where physical condition, on a temporary basis, prevents you attending your own GP.
  • Where you are resident for a short time i.e holiday outside your GP catchments area.
