All routine appointments have been cancelled. You are no longer able to book an appointment for a routine matter. This decision has been taken by the Scottish Government in relation to the COVID-19 outbreak. We will be calling patients who have appointments already booked.

Our Admin Staff are still working as normal answering calls and arranging prescriptions. It is important that we allow telephone lines to be open and available for those with moderate/severe/persistent problems. We will not be able to provide any "To whom it may concern" letters or medical reports for the foreseeable future.
DISTRICT NURSE APPOINTMENTS
The District Nurse team will be in contact with you via telephone to discuss your appointment.
All prescription requests must be made via Practice Website or telephone. Please DO NOT attempt to put your prescription through the letter box. When requesting a prescription you must allow at least 72 hrs for collection at the Pharmacy due to the high volume of requests. Prescriptions will not be given out from the practice.
Our Admin staff have been asked to check if your medication request is due from the date of your last order.
Please telephone the practice as usual and your sick line will be sent to you in the post and not collected at the Practice.
Our telephone lines are extremely busy. We had an unprecedented number of calls this week asking for general advice. Please accept our apologies but we are doing our very best to answer as quickly as possible. We have our Admin Team working incredibly hard throughout the day.
