Noticeboard

As restrictions ease in Scotland to level 3 we continue to remain open to patients.  If you have any COVID symptoms please contact 111 for initial assessment.  We are unfortunately not able to asses you until we receive this report from 111. Our appointments are via telephone triage initially, where a Clinician will arrange for you to come to the Practice if required at a time that is safe to do so.  This is for your protection and that of other patients, as well as to protect staff.  Our patient advisors will ask you for further details in order to direct you to the most appropriate Clinician.


Thank you for your patience and understanding at what is a challenging time.
