Public holidays - the practice will be closed on Monday 3rd May and Monday 7th June. Please phone 111 if you need assistance.
We have now vaccinated over 1750 patients with their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccination and have started on the second doses.
If you are over 50 years old and have not been called to come in for your first vaccination please get in touch with us.
The following is advice from the Scottish Government:- Please do not contact your GP Practice to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate – they will not be able to provide any standard document. International certification standards have not yet been agreed. The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel once it is safe to do so. We are working with the other UK Nations and with the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future COVID certification requirements for international travel. As part of this, we are developing a technical solution that could allow people to access their Covid vaccination status directly
If you have a new continuous cough OR fever OR loss of / change in sense of smell or taste you and your household must self isolate.

We have all had to learn to live and work differently during the COVID 19 Pandemic. We thank all our patients for their understanding and support during this time. We have had to learn and do the majority of our work over the telephone and using email to help deliver primary medical care to our patients. This has resulted in lengthy waits to get through to us on the telephone and likewise for us to get back to patients. We are continuing to see patients both at the surgery and visit the housebound as needed.
We will continue to re-assess our service and make changes for the better. We welcome feedback but please provide this via post or email.
We are happy to receive requests for prescriptions via our Practice email:
Please see 'quick links' for our latest news letter for more information on the practice.
