We recognise that sometimes it is not easy to see us during working hours.
Extended access service
The aim of the service is to offer a greater range of appointments for routine problems. The types of problems that can be seen by the extended access service are similar to those that can be pre-booked during normal working hours. These are late evening surgeries.
This service is for routine medical conditions and is not an emergency service. The service is limited where doctors will be restricted in their physical examination of patients, and scope to arrange investigation. (This is because of the absence of practice nursing/ treatment room services and lab service back-up which the Scottish Government has decided not to fund).
Patients will therefore not be able to have blood tests, smear tests or an intimate examination requiring assistance from a chaperone, any chronic disease management review, or dressings or ear syringing, but will have to return for a day-time appointment if these services are required. Young children and the elderly who require to be brought to the surgery by working family members will also be welcome to these appointments.
If you become unwell after 6:00pm please call NHS 24 as usual on 111.
Extended access booking
On Mondays Doctor and Nurse appointments are available in late evenings. We also do once a month late evening surgery on a Thursday. This is particularly for people with work commitments. Appointments for the extended access service are booked by calling the surgery reception.
