Northern Ireland’s new health minister Jim Wells has opened a new GP practice in Northern Ireland.

The Mount Oriel Medical Practice has relocated to the Knockbreda Wellbeing and Treatment centre, which is the same facility as the GP Out-of -Hours Service.

It will extend the range of community services available to patients living in south Belfast with children’s community nursing, occupational therapy, pain service, physiotherapy, podiatry, health visiting, speech and language therapy, and mental health services.

Speaking at the event the health minister, Jim Wells, said: “The move supports the Transforming Your Care agenda and will address the need for healthcare teams in the south Belfast area to be co-located and so provide greater access to health and social services in the locality.

“This means more care provided outside hospitals and in the community, closer to people’s homes. This will help people to live independently for as long as possible and reduce avoidable hospital admissions. This centre is a perfect example of this model of care.”
