When We Are Closed
If you wish to obtain medical advice outwith normal surgery hours, please dial the surgery number as usual and you will be given the number of NHS24. Alternatively you can contact them directly on 111.
A receptionist at NHS24 will answer your call and arrange for you to have a nurse consultation. The nurse may be able to deal with your problem over the phone, invite you to attend an emergency centre or arrange a home visit. Transport to and from the centre is available if you cannot arrange this yourself. Out of hours care is now the responsibility of NHS Lanarkshire. Further information and advice is available on the NHS24 number given above or at www.NHS24.co.uk.
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.
