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.          


If you have received one of your coronavirus vaccinations elsewhere in the UK, you can now request your Scottish Vaccine Central record to include this information - see under Further Information, "Coronavirus & Flu Vaccination".


For information on this years Flu vaccination and Covid Vaccination  - See the section Further information, "Coronavirus & Flu Vaccination" 


Why are GP Practices still working differently?  - See the poster under Further Information, Posters - Information & Events 


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.


If you think you have received a call or text message related to corona virus that you think is fraudulent please refer to the Action Fraud website.


From Friday 10th July 2020 we are encouraging all patients who are attending the surgery to wear a face mask/face covering.



Consultations are by appointment and are currently telephone appointments unless otherwise arranged by the Doctor/Clinician. 

Appointments with a doctor are normally at ten-minute intervals.  If you have spent over ten minutes with the doctor and still have issues to discuss, the doctor may ask you to make another appointment.  This is to help address the lengthy delays that can be so frustrating for waiting patients.

The receptionist team will be happy to help with any queries that you may have about the range of services provided by the surgery and attached staff.

Receptionists are trained to ask relevant and sometimes personal questions, to elicit all the relevant information necessary to help you and to ensure you see the correct health professional for your needs. They are bound by the same code of practice as the Doctors and all matters will be dealt with in the strictest confidence. If you have a particular problem that you would prefer not to discuss at reception, please ask to discuss it in private.

You may be asked to send a photograph/s into the Practice if the problem you have is visible, so that the Doctor or Clinician is able to see it prior to your consultation.  

Photographs should be emailed to our clinical mailbox:

~~Please only send photographs if you have been asked to do so by the Practice~~

On-call appointments

We have a limited amount of "on-call" slots each afternoon with the duty doctor which are reserved for urgent on-the-day requests.   If you are given one of these "on-call" appointments,  please be aware that there is a possibility you may not be seen at your exact appointment time as the duty doctor may be dealing with other urgent matters i.e. home visits or emergency calls.

Patients are requested to use our Self Check-in Screen on arrival, details of which can be found on the above tab.

We encourage patients to attend the same doctor throughout the duration of a particular episode of care. 

Minor Illness / Nurse Prescriber Clinic

Our trained and highly experienced practice nurses run this clinic daily.  These appointments are offered to those patients who feel they need seen the same day.  They can deal with chest infections, upper respiratory tract infections, urine infections, skin infections, eczema, hay fever, back pain for example.  Please give the receptionist an idea of your symptoms so that they can give you an appointment with the appropriate person.

Treatment Rooms

The practice nurse team offer appointments Monday to Friday between the hours of 08:30 to 12:30 for blood tests, dressings, etc. Various clinics are usually run between the hours of 13:50 to 17:30.

Please indicate what the nurse appointment is for when booking, as some of the procedures require particular skills or additional time .


"Did not Attend" appointments in the week commencing Mon 2nd March 2020 totalled: hourglass

40 minutes of Doctors time and 85 minutes of Practice Nurse time


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.

DNA Appointment Policy


Approximately 120 appointments per month are 'Did Not Attend' (DNA), i.e. the patient does not turn up for the appointment and does not contact the surgery in advance to cancel/change their appointment.

The effect of these missed appointments are:

  • An increase in the waiting time for appointments
  • Frustration for both staff and patients
  • A waste of resources


If a patient fails to attend a pre-booked appointment a 1st DNA letter will be sent to the patient, advising them on how to cancel appointments in the future to reduce wasted clinician time.

If the patient fails to attend another (2nd) appointment, a 2nd DNA letter will be sent to the patient advising them that should they miss another appointment within the next four month period we will have no alternative but to ask them to find another practice in the area.


We have access to an interpretation and translation service for patients who do not speak English - please let us know if you need this service when booking an appointment. 

Telephone Advice

Sometimes you may simply want advice from the doctor or another member of the team.  They may not be immediately available and you may be asked to call back at a more convenient time. Please let the receptionist know about whom or what your call concerns, so that the relevant records are available for the call.
