For the foreseeable future, no face to face appointments will be arranged without a phone call from the surgery first.

 

Doctor’s appointments – any pre booked Doctors appointments – the doctor will phone you instead, please do not attend the surgery. The doctor will decide if it is necessary for you to come to the surgery.

 

Nurse’s appointment/Phlebotomy Appointments/Physio Appointments – we are no longer taking bookings for routine appointments.

 

For any NURSE OR PHLEBOTOMY appointments already booked – the surgery will contact you prior to your appointment to check if it is suitable for you to attend surgery. Do not come to the surgery until you have been advised to attend by reception.

 

 

DO NOT COME IN TO THE SURGERY TO BOOK APPOINTMENTS – WE WILL ONLY DEAL WITH QUERIES OVER THE PHONE. Therefore the surgery doors are closed.

 

Please do not call the surgery for corona virus advice.  Use www.nhsinform.scot or free phone 08000282816
