Extended Practice Opening Hours

As part of the Government’s plans to improve healthcare we are now open three mornings per week *from 7am (see above for start times and days), mainly to see patients who are unable to attend during the day for their appointment. Please note no reception staff are on duty at these times, and you will therefore not be able to contact the Practice by phone. If you are late for an early morning appointment you will not be seen. If you need to cancel you appointment within 24 hours please either phone, text facility, or use the website form. When you arrive for your appointment please wait in the waiting room and one of the doctor’s will call you.

This service will be for routine medical conditions and is not an emergency service. The service is limited where doctors will be restricted in their physical examination of patients, and scope to arrange investigation. (This is because of the absence of practice nursing/ treatment room services and lab service back-up which the Scottish Government has decided not to fund).

Patients will therefore not be able to have blood tests, smear tests or an intimate examination requiring assistance from a chaperone, any chronic disease management review, or dressings or ear syringing, but will have to return for a day-time appointment if these services are required. Young children and the elderly who require to be brought to the surgery by working family members will also be welcome to these appointments.

If you become unwell after 6:00pm please call NHS 24 as usual – 111

Cancelled Appointments

It is important that you inform the reception staff if you you are unable to attend your appointment, this will allow that appointment to be offered to another patient. If you fail to notify the Practice that you are unable to attend, you will be sent a letter informing you that you have defaulted from your appointment. Persistent defaulters maybe removed from the list.

You can also complete our appointment cancellation notification request form. This can only be used if your appointment has been arranged for more than 24 hours in advance. (excluding weekends and public holidays). You can also text to cancel your appointment.

If you are Late

Please attend your appointment on time, if you are late you may not be seen. If you are not seen you will not be able to rearrange your appointment until the next working day-except in the event of an medical emergency that requires immediate attention.
