Nursing team appointments - Increased flexibility for patients

The improved IT infrastructure now allows registered patients to be seen by any practice nurse, specialist nurse or healthcare assistant at any surgery.  Please contact your surgery for more information. 

Contacting your surgery by telephone

Calls made to surgeries will be answered between the hours of 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays when NHS24 answers the calls). Any surgery can make new appointments or change existing appointments.  It is also possible to process repeat prescriptions at a surgery other than at your registered practice.


More information on the services offered at each of our three sites can be found in our services section.
