To make sure we all stay safe, your healthcare may be provided in a different way than before. You may have a video or phone consultation, instead of a face to face one.

Please respect our staff during this difficult time for everyone.

Levenside are currently receiving a high volume of calls daily. Please note the current telephone system, installed in November 2020, does not have a queuing information service.  We are unable to resolve this issue as to do so would come at a monetary cost to you, our patients.  When you are given the option on our phone system to press 3 to book an appointment you will hear the phone ringing.  You are now in a queue to speak to a Receptionist.  Please be assured your call will be answered and that the phone ringing represents you being in a queue.  We have 3 Receptionists answering calls every morning.

The Practice had no control over choosing the telephone system which has been installed across Dumbarton Health Centre and a complaint has been submitted to the Telecoms Manager.

August 19th, 2021

We will be getting essential IT upgrades to all our computers on Thursday 12th and Friday 13th of August.

As a result we are required to operate emergency only clinics on these days.  We would kindly ask that you only contact the practice on these days if it’s essential.  Please accept our sincere apologies in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thank you for your support.
