When We Are Closed
NHS 24 provide out of hours cover between 6.00pm and 8.00am, Monday to Friday, during Saturday and Sunday and at any other time the practice may be closed. To obtain medical advice you must call NHS 24; this can be done in several ways:
- By calling NHS 24 directly on 111
- By using the NHS 24 website, www.nhs24.com
- By using the NHS Inform website to assess your symptoms and see if you can obtain advice elsewhere or use self care methods https://www.nhsinform.scot/
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.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
