Extended Hours: Every Thursday from 7.30am.  These are pre-booked appointments.  If you have one of these appointments please wait outside the waiting room door.  The doctor/ANP will come and call for you.

You don’t always have to see your GP...

Although your GP can help with a range of problems there are many health problems which do not need a doctor.

When We Are Closed

Out of Hours – Tel 111

Weekdays 18:00 – 08:00 Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays as published by the practice each year).

Weekends 18:00 Friday – 08:00 Monday.

Your call will automatically connect to NHS24 who will triage calls.

If you require medical care after 18:00 or at weekends, NHS24 and out of hours centres will be able to access your Emergency Care Records. This will tell the clinicians which drugs you are taking, all medications prescribed within the past year and whether you have had any adverse reactions. If you would like to see your Emergency Care Summary, please ask for a print out at reception. This service will be available in A&E and in all areas in Scotland. If you do not wish to have an Emergency Care Summary record, please inform the Practice Manager.

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.
