When We Are Closed
Emergencies ocurring outwith surgery hours are dealt with by NHS24 on 111. The surgery is closed between 18:00 - 08:00 Monday - Friday and from Friday 18:00 until Monday 08:00.
To obtain medical advice during these times, please call 111 and your call will be answered by a receptionist in the emergency centre. She will either:
- arrange for you to receive advice from a doctor
- invite you to attend a centre at one of the local hospitals (usually Drumchapel)
- if you are too ill to attend, are housebound or very elderly, a home visit will be arranged. Transport to and from the centre is available if you cannot arrange this yourself.
In common with all other practices in the area, we are not contracted to provide emergency services during the out of hours period. The provision of these services is the responsibility of the GGNHSB.
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.
