Noticeboard

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

The practice REMAINS OPEN for all essential primary care problems but on the advice of Health Protection Scotland we have had to restrict all attendance at the practice so please do not attend in person unless instructed to do so.

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.

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.

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