Opening Times

Surgery Opening Times

The surgery is open Monday to Friday: 8.30 am to 6.00 pm

Practice Extended Opening Hours

As part of the Governments plans to improve healthcare we are now opening the practice one evening per week on a Monday 5.30 pm – 6.45 pm mainly to see patients who are unable to attend during the day for their appointment.  The service is limited where doctors will be restricted in their physical examination of patients, and scope to arrange investigation.  (This is because of the absence of practice nursing / treatment room services and lab service back-up which the Scottish Government has decided not to fund)  Patients will therefore not be able to have blood tests, smear tests or an intimate examination requiring assistance from a chaperone, any chronic disease management review, or dressings or ear syringing, but will have to return  for a day-time appointment if these services are required. Young children and the elderly who require to be brought to the surgery by working family members will also be welcome to these appointments.

When We Are Closed

The practice is closed between 6 pm and 8 am Monday to Friday, closed at weekends and Public Holidays. If you need urgent medical advice during these times please contact NHS 24 on 111. Further details are available on the NHS 24 website – www.nhs24.com. A nurse from NHS 24 will assess your symptoms and if you need to see a doctor this will be arranged – patients are seen at The Royal Alexandra Hospital, Paisley.

Between 8 am and 8.30 am Monday to Friday, out of hours emergency cover is provided by phoning: 07891 782523.

In serious emergencies dial 999 for an ambulance.
