Noticeboard

For all COVID related health enquiries only - please click COVID HUB for more info or dial 111 any time of day or night. Please contact the practice for all health matters not relating to COVID 19.

Due to the recent Coronavirus outbreak we will be changing our appointment system on a temporary basis from Monday 16th March 2020. Anyone calling for an appointment will be asked to leave a phone number and then called back by a GP to discuss their problem. This is to minimise exposure risks to both patients and staff. For the same reason, online booking of appointments has also been suspended.

Any appointments booked prior to this point will go ahead as planned.

To minimise the number of patients who have to come to the practice we will not be performing smears or other routine procedures such as minor surgery until the coronavirus situation stabilises

Coronavirus  - for the latest and most up to date information please see https://www.nhsinform.scot/coronavirus
