When We Are Closed
Emergency cover during evenings, weekends and public holidays is provided by GMED and NHS24. If you need urgent medical treatment outwith normal surgery times, please call 111.
Your call will be diverted to the NHS24 centre automatically. You may be given advice over the telephone, if appropriate, or you may be asked to attend the emergency centre.
Emergencies - dial 999 and also phone your doctor
- heart attacks presenting as severe tightness or pain across the chest with sweating and breathlessness
- sudden severe bleeding
- accidents involving unconsciousness
We recommend that patients living in rural areas keep a note of their postcode or six- figure grid reference to assist the Scottish Ambulance Service in finding their address urgently. It would also be helpful to give instructions on accessing more remote addresses.
You can contact NHS24 on 111 or http://www.nhs24.com/
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
