Making an appointment:

All consultations are by appointment. Urgent appointments are usually available for the same day as requested. If you feel that it is vital to be seen on that day and there are no available appointments, you will be given an urgent (5 minute) appointment with whichever doctor is available.

Out of hours:

NHS24 on 111

All weekday calls between 18:00 and 08:00, and weekend calls between Friday 18:00 and Monday 08:00 are dealt with by BECS, the local GP cooperative. These calls are dealt with by the GP on duty, who will give advice, ask for the patient to be seen at Borders General Hospital, or arrange a home visit. The telephone number for BECS is 111. An answering machine gives this number if you ring the surgery out of hours. 

Home visits:

If you need the doctor to call because someone is too ill to be brought to the surgery then please telephone before 10:30. The receptionist may ask you for some details so that the doctor can assess how urgent your problem is and, if necessary, give advice until he/she can visit you. 

Repeat prescriptions:

Repeat prescription requests should be made between 10:00 and 12:30 


If you require further information or have a suggestion or complaint about the Practice then please feel free to phone our staff during surgery opening hours or leave a note in the suggestion box. Any suggestions or comments to improve the service we provide will be most welcome.
