When We Are Closed
Out-of-hours cover is the responsibility of NHS Tayside and services are provided during the following periods when the surgery is closed:
- Monday to Friday 18:00 - 08:00
- Saturday to Monday 08:00 - 08:00 (weekends)
- Bank holidays 18:00 the night before until 08:00 the day after
For urgent advice during these times, please phone NHS 24 on 111. You will speak first to an experienced nurse who will assess your symptoms and give advice or direct you to the most appropriate healthcare professionals or organise a home visit. If you phone the surgery, you will hear a message advising you of the NHS 24 number to contact. The website address is www.nhs24.com.
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.
