When We Are Closed
This practice does not provide services out with the normal practice hours. Services during the hours of 18:00 to 08:00 Monday to Friday and from 18:00 on Friday to 08:00 on Monday are provided by NHS Lothian, who also provide services on specified public holidays. A notice regarding public holidays will be displayed in advance.
To access the out-of-hours service telephone NHS 24 on 111 where an experienced NHS 24 nurse will assess your symptoms and provide advice to help look after yourself at home. If you need further assessment or treatment, either from a GP or at a local hospital, NHS 24’s nurse will arrange this for you with existing local services.
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.
