Just to remind all patient's when attending the Surgery, that there are parking spaces directly outside the building on the High Street. There are also parking spaces available in the car park behind the Chemist. 

Alternatively, if all these spaces are full, then there is a main car park on Aquithie Road, which is adjacent to the fish and chip shop.

Please DO NOT use the parking spaces behind Collies Butcher's (in between the GP Surgery and J G Ross bakery) as these spaces are for their own staff use and lorry deliveries to their shop.

Thank You

  • overdose

  • severe breathlessness

  • sudden severe bleeding

Our surgery has a triage telephone system which can be accessed by patients requesting an urgent on the day appointment.


The purpose of triage is to ensure that every patient requesting an urgent on the day appointment is referred to the most appropriate service for their illness. Each patient will have their symptoms discussed with a doctor or practitioner. On conclusion of this telephone call you will be advised of the best course of action for your condition. This may include -

  • Self help
  • Advised to contact your local pharmacy, dentist or optician
  • Suggest a routine appointment with a doctor, practitioner or nurse
  • Or arrange an emergency appointment if the clinician decides that your condition requires to be assessed on that day

If you require an urgent on the day appointment -

The triage system will work as follows:

  • Contact the surgery by telephone on 01467 642289 and press option 2 before 10 am if you have an acute emergency illness or injury.

  • Please provide the receptionist with a brief description of the problem and contact number so that your call can be prioritised.

  • Our administration staff are not prying; they are working under our instructions, and are bound by the same code of confidentiality as the clinical staff.

  • If you have contacted the practice and been advised that an Emergency GP will call you back, two attempts will be made to speak with you.  If after two attempts, we have still been unable to speak with you this call will then be closed.

    If you do still wish to speak to our Emergency GP, you will need to phone the surgery back to start the process again.

    For those whose occupation or responsibilities have an impact upon availability to receive a triage call at certain times of day, please make this known to the receptionist or please ask them to insert a comment specifying this. 

    Whilst we cannot guarantee, we will endeavour to accommodate where possible.

Calls to the triage line will be accepted after 10 am but you may experience a delay in returning your call and our urgent appointments fill very quickly.

A doctor or practitioner will contact you on the number you provided.

  • Please ensure you remain beside your phone or within mobile phone service range.

  • Our telephone number will appear as a withheld number.

  • This service does not replace telephone consultations which can be pre-booked.

  • Our triage telephone system is very busy and we appreciate your assistance in making the process seamless.


Emergencies will be dealt with promptly. Telephone 01467 642289 and give as much information to the receptionist who will relate the details to the duty doctor.


If you are unable to keep appointments, please let us know as soon as possible so that the appointment can be reallocated. Failing to keep appointments wastes considerable medical and administrative time. Dozens of appointments are “lost” each month because patients simply fail to cancel unwanted appointments.

When patients miss appointments, it can be disruptive for both healthcare providers and other patients in need of care. 

This is a particular concern for GP's, who are responsible for the overall care of patients, but can also be an issue for hospital doctors.

** LATECOMERS - patients arriving more than 10 minutes late for an appointment will require to re-book another appointment time.  Furthermore, in fairness to patients arriving on time, late-comers will not be guaranteed an appointment. **

When you are ill or injured, know who to turn to....

Vision Impairment

In the UK, there are almost 2 million people living with sight loss. Of these, around 360,000 are registered as blind or partially sighted.

Being told you have a visual impairment that can’t be treated can be difficult to come to terms with.

Some people go through a process similar to bereavement, where they experience a range of emotions including shock, anger, and denial, before eventually coming to accept their condition.

If you have been given an Omron or Nebulizer from the Surgery, it is planned that this loan is for a limited period of time, usually one week.

Please return these items to the Surgery as soon as possible

We have patients waiting to use these items and to keep them for a prolonged length of time means that treatment is being delayed for other patients.

In the event of unreturned items, may cause invoices being sent to the patient.
