We will be running a mop up clinic on Saturday 7th November at Dunninc Road , but this will depend on having sufficient vaccines in stock.

You can book your appointment online from Wednesday 16th September, or call the surgery between 4pm and 6pm from Monday 21st September. Please ensure when booking online that you book yourself into the correct age slot.

Patients will be screened and have their temperature taken prior to receiving the vaccination, Face coverings must be worn

Home Visits

home_visitIf you require a home visit, please telephone the surgery before 10.30am and give the receptionist some indication of the problem so that the visiting doctor will know how urgent the visit is. The doctor is likely to ring you to assess the situation further.

Home visits are essential but they are really for those patients who are PHYSICALLY UNABLE TO COME TO THE SURGERY due to AGE or INFIRMITY ie HOUSEBOUND

We prefer to see in the surgery where we have the facilities to properly examine patients. There we can arrange referral to hospital or further tests more easily and quickly. Furthermore the doctor can see AT LEAST 4 more patients in the time it takes to do a home visit and return.

Telephone Advice

If you are unwell and ring the surgery and find that there are no appointments available, then please give details of your illness to the Receptionist who will then pass the information to the Doctor on call so he can contact you to decide on the best course of action. He may prescribe you something over the telephone or he may call you in to see him. Please ensure that you are available when the Doctor rings back.
