REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS ONLINE

We have now introduced Patient Services Online for ordering repeat medication.  If you haven't done so already you will need to register for the new system.  Please click on the Prescriptions tab for further information.

ONLINE APPOINTMENTS

From 1st March 2019 a limited number of GP appointments which are bookable 48 hours in advance will be available through the Patient Services website.  Please click on the Appointments tab for further details on how to access these appointments. (unfortunately the ability to book these online appointments has been suspended due to Covid-19)

FORTHCOMING HOLIDAYS

Public Holidays:

Please note the following forthcoming public holiday dates when the surgery will be closed:

Christmas - Friday 25th and Monday 28th December 2020

New Year - Friday 1st January and Monday 4th January 2021

Please make sure you have sufficient medication to see you through the holiday period.

Please contact NHS24 on 111 if you can't wait until the surgery re-opens.

We will re-open as normal following the above dates.

 

EXTENDED HOURS APPOINTMENTS 

Pre-bookable appointments will be available with a GP or a nurse on Monday and Thursday mornings from 07:10 till 08:30 am.

 

These appointments are for patients who work and are unable to attend surgery during normal surgery opening hours.

 

 

NO APPOINTMENTS!

A major part of this problem is the number of wasted appointments.

DESPITE OUR 'SAME DAY' APPOINTMENT SYSTEM

Keeping treatment room and practice nurse appointments is just as important as with your GP.

If you are unable to keep an appointment, it is essential to cancel it as soon as possible, as we may be able to offer it to another patient.

The Scottish Bowel Screening Programme

The Scottish Bowel Cancer Screening Programme will invite all men and women between the ages of 50 and 74 years who are registered with a GP to be screened for bowel cancer every 2 years. It is therefore vital that you inform the surgery of any change of address so that you will receive your invitation for screening.
