  • Dr Irvine will be resigning from her role within the on Friday 24th May 2019

Our aim is to ensure patient centered care from a safe, effective, well lead, responsive caring service.




We are not currently accepting new patients onto our list, with the exception of newly born babies with mothers already registered at the practice.


We feel that our current list size is such that accepting more patients could jeopardise the care of patients who are already registered.


Welcome to Drs McElroy & Thompson

With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As  practice details such as opening hours and you’ll also find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.

Named GP

 All patients, including children have been allocated a named, accountable GP. This is a contractual requirement and by 31 March 2016 all practices will need to include on their website reference to the fact that all patients, including children have been allocated a named, accountable GP.

Can patients choose their own named GP?

In the first instance, patients should simply be allocated a named GP. However, if a patient requests a particular GP, reasonable efforts should be made to accommodate their preference, recognising that there are occasions when the practice may not feel the patient's preference is suitable.

Do patients have to see the named GP when they book an appointment with the practice?

No. Patients can and should feel free to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice in line with current arrangements. However, some practices may see this change as a way to encourage and promote a greater degree of continuity of care for patients.
