Due to the current lock down & new covid strain we are reintroducing stricter measures to reduce footfall in the practice.

Prescriptions; please specify a chemist to collect from when ordering. Fit Notes; will be emailed or posted.

We continue to operate phone & video consultations. If you need seen face to face a clinician will invite you to the surgery.

We will contact eligible patients direct re the covid vaccination as soon as we have further information. All shielding patients will be lettered by the Scottish Government in due course.

We appreciate your assistance.

The festive holidays are fast approaching. Your GP surgery & local pharmacies become exceptionally busy during this period.

Please help us by ordering your medication in plenty of time so we have sufficient time to get this ready for you. Also, make sure you have enough medication to cover the festive period to reduce strain on the out of hours services.

Thank you.

Elaine covers all our normal chronic disease reviews and contraception reviews. She can also perform cervical smear tests and offer advice on minor illnesses amongst many other things. Elaine will be working with us all day Tuesdays and Thursdays.

We still of course have our Advanced Nurse Practitioners Elaine Ponton & Jackie Low.
