     When We Are Closed     

To access medical services outwith surgery hours, please telephone NHS24 on freephone 111 or the normal surgery number to hear a message giving you this number.

NHS24 is a health advice and information service available around the clock and has a website http://www.nhs24.scot/

When you call you will be asked for your name, address, phone number, the name of your GP and any medication you are currently taking.  A nurse advisor will assess your symptoms and give practical advice on what to do next. Please ask at reception for the leaflet prepared by NHS24.

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.
