When We Are Closed
A doctor is always on call to deal with emergencies. Our surgery is part of NHS24, and out of hours cover is now the responsibility of NHS Tayside.
When the surgery is closed telephone 01382 580264. You will hear a recorded message that will tell you how to contact the EMERGENCY SERVICE (please have a pen and paper ready).
Your call will be taken by an experienced, trained call handler who will determine the help you require. Once your details have been taken the call handler will transfer you to a trained nurse who may give you advice, arrange emergency services, or arrange for you to see a doctor.
Further advice and information can also be obtained from NHS24 on telephone number 111 or web address www.nhs24.com.
NHS24 out-of-hours services are generally very busy and we ask patients to only contact them if they genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In the case of an emergency you should call 999.
