COVID VACCINATIONS - Patients will be notified when they become eligible to book an appointment for the vaccine which may not be at the Practice.  We are awaiting government response regarding any "certification" of having been vaccinated.

Please do not attend the surgery to make an appointment, our doors are locked and only patients with pre-booked appointments are allowed access.

From Friday 10th July 2020 we are encouraging all patients who are attending the surgery to wear a face mask/face covering.

 

     When We Are Closed     

To access medical services outwith surgery hours, please telephone NHS24 on freephone 111 or the normal surgery number to hear a message giving you this number.

NHS24 is a health advice and information service available around the clock and has a website http://www.nhs24.scot/

When you call you will be asked for your name, address, phone number, the name of your GP and any medication you are currently taking.  A nurse advisor will assess your symptoms and give practical advice on what to do next. Please ask at reception for the leaflet prepared by NHS24.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999.

Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
