When We Are Closed

Out-of-hours cover is now the responsibility of NHS Tayside Board.  This service if currently operated by NHS 24 who you can telephone on 111.  If you have difficulty in contacting this service please dial the operator on 100.

If you require medical care after 18:00 or at weekends, NHS24 and out of hour’s centres will be able to access your ECS (Emergency Care Summary) records.  This will tell the clinicians which drugs you are taking, all medications prescribed within the past year and whether you have had any adverse reactions.  If you would like to see your ECS, please ask for a print out at reception.  This service will soon be available in A&E and in all areas of Scotland.  If you do not wish to have an ECS record, please inform the Practice Manager.  If you would like further information, leaflets are available at the front desk.

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.
