Noticeboard

We are currently still following covid-19 NHS Scotland Guidelines for patient wishing medical advice.  This means the first contact you will have with the surgery is with our health advisors who will triage your call and pass this to the GP.  The GP will then phone you back and if they feel you need to be seen face to face they will give you a time to come to the surgery.  Do not attend earlier as you will be asked to wait outside until your appointment time.  We appreciate this is frustrating, however, our staff are working hard and doing their best to keep everyone safe and we ask you to be respectful of this.  Thank you for your co operation.
