Noticeboard

This GP Practice is currently restricting access for the safety of all patients and staff.

All patients will still have access to the care they require.

We are currently offering telephone consultations with the clinicians, please call the surgery from 8am daily to book in for a call back.

If a clinician deems it necessary for you to attend the surgery, please attend on time and we would ask that you wear an appropriate face covering.

We appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.

Please note that from the 1st November 2021 the surgery will close each lunchtime (Monday to Friday) from 13:00 until 14:00 to allow time for staff training and development.

We are aware that there is a new NHS App - "NHS Digital" - this app is only for NHS England and does not apply in the rest of the UK.  As far as we know there are no non-clinical data sharing policies currently being discussed in Scotland.

The Covid-19 Vaccination Status Scheme is now live and will allow those who have been vaccinated to request proof of vaccine. Only those planning to travel to a country or territory where a record of vaccination status is needed as an entry requirement should download the record or request it.  Please visit the Further Information section, Coronavirus Vaccination for further information.

     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.
