FACE COVERINGS

In keeping with Scottish Government guidelines, all patients are required to wear a face covering when entering the hospital and during your visit at the surgery.  We do have a limited supply of face masks and one can be provided should it be needed but we would kindly ask everyone to use their own where possible.

CORONAVIRUS

Please note that all requests for GP appointments are currently being triaged by telephone.

If you have any symptoms of fever, new continuous cough, change in taste or smell or have been in contact with someone with coronavirus please do not come into the practice. For advice on symptoms please telephone the practice or 111.  Please note that 111 are currently experiencing high call volumes.  

Prescriptions

Due to the current situation with coronavirus the community pharmacies are experiencing a very high demand for their services.  Please leave 72 hours before collecting your prescription.  Please check opening times before visiting the pharmacy.

Appointments

The Practice offers a variety of types of appointment: bookable in advance, 48 hours and 'On the Day'.

Appointments will be for 12 minutes unless stated otherwise.

During holiday periods the number of 'On the Day' surgeries is increased to ensure that patients with immediate medical problems are dealt with promptly.

For a new episode of illness you may not necessarily need to be seen by your usual GP as any doctor in the Practice will be able to help you. We also offer telephone consultations at a variety of times – please ask at reception for more details of this service.

Extended Hours

The Practice offers appointments two mornings per week from 08:00.  For more details please contact reception.  These appointments are specifically for patients who have work or travel commitments and who would not be able to attend during the working day.  

Cancellations

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
