Appointments

Currently, as is the case in most GP surgeries nationwide, all appointments are Telephone consultations. This is due to the ongoing impact caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and to protect both patients, GP's and staff alike.
You will only be offered a face to face appointent if you have had a telephone consultation with the GP/ANP and it is deemed that this is essential.
If you are allocated a Telephone consultation, this is your appointment unless stated otherwise at the end of this consultation.
If you are required to attend the surgery, please wear a face covering or mask. Our Touchscreen is now operational so please use this to check-in were possible.
Please ensure to use hand gel BEFORE and AFTER touching the screen. In addition to this, this screen will be cleaned regularly as are all other surfaces in the surgery.
We realise it can currently be difficult and frustrating for everyone in our daily lives and particularly if you are unwell but we do appreciate your patience and understanding during these unprecidented times.

New Registrations

In a further bid to minimise the amount of people attending the practice, any new patients wishing to register, please download registration forms from our website and post this to us, along with a copy of your proof of address. Alternatively you can now email these documents (or any other documents which have been requested by the surgery) to:

Bowel Screening

Bowel cancer is the third most common cancer in Scotland after lung and breast cancer. Every year almost 4,000 people are diagnosed with the disease. For men the risk of getting colorectal cancer over the age of 50 is 1 in 18 (5.5%) and for women the equivalent risk is 1 in 22 (4.5%). The overall uptake rate for the bowel screening programme in Scotland is 52% for men and 58% for women

The Scottish Bowel Screening Programme invites all men and women in Scotland between the ages of 50 to 74 for screening every two years. They are invited by a letter being sent to the address that is registered with the practice (if you change address please inform the practice as soon as possible). Once you are in the age band, you will be recalled during the same month every 2 years until you reach 75.

All the GP’s in the practice support this service and would like as many patients as possible to send back their screening kit. If we are advised that you have not done this we will send you a letter just to remind you of the importance. Don’t worry if you have mislaid your kit you can obtain another by contacting:

Scottish Bowel Screening Helpline 0800 0121 833
