Please do not contact the practice to request a letter regarding face mask exemption. There is no requirement to obtain evidence in the form of a letter from a doctor or government that you are exempt. If you have a condition which means you cannot wear a face covering you need only advise if asked that you cannot wear a face covering because you are exempt for one of the reasons listed.
Please click on the the link below to the Scottish Government website for more information on face coverings and exemptions.
DO NOT VISIT THE SURGERY unless you have an appointment with the GP or Practice Nurse.
Prescriptions can be ordered using online services, by telephoning our dedicated prescription line on 01828 627318 or by putting the repeat order slip through the letterbox in the fire door at the end of the building. Our telephones are extremely busy at present and it may take longer than usual to get through.

The Practice has introduced a text messaging service for patients. A text message will be sent to you 48hrs in advance as a reminder you have an appointment booked with the GP, Practice Nurse or HCA. We hope this service will reduce the number of appointments wasted due to non-attendance as it has the function to send back a reply to cancel the appointment if it is no longer required. The text message will not contain any patient identifiable information. The message will only include the date and time of the appointment and the name of the healthcare professional you are seeing. This service is only available to patients 16yrs and over.
If you wish to receive text reminders, please ensure you have provided us with your current mobile number. You can ask a member of the reception team to confirm the mobile number we hold on record if you are not sure.
If you do not wish to receive text reminders, please complete a declaration form (click on link below) and hand it in at reception. We will add a code to your record to prevent any text messages being sent to you in the future.
You will be able to opt in again at any time if you change your mind.
We are pleased to announce our online service has gone live. Patients can book/cancel appointments and order medication online. (more…)
