Welcome to Lewis Square Practice Dr Lua, Dr Jamison and Dr Patterson have a long association with East Belfast and look forward to the opportunity of providing you medical services from our new premises that opened in 2004. As you know we are situated on the third floor of the new health centre and the treatment room is on the ground floor.
The Lewis Sqaure practice has been open every week day during the Covid Pandemic. We have been consulting with patients by telephone and in person for anyone who needs to be seen or wishes to be seen. Please do not attend the Health Centre unless you have been asked to by the GP or the nurse for a booked appointment
The Arches Centre is wheelchair friendly and has facilities to help easy access for the disabled. There are lifts and disabled toilets. There is disabled car parking near the front door. Please let us know if access proves difficult and we would be happy to consider any suggestions for improvements.
