When We Are Closed
In common with all North East Fife GP’s, this Practice is part of the NHS 24 Emergency Care Scheme; further details are available on line at www.nhs24.com. This service is for emergencies, urgent treatment or advice that cannot wait until the surgery opens.
When you telephone the Practice between the hours of 18:00 and 08:00 on weekdays, or between 18:00 on Friday and 08:00 on Monday, you will be given an emergency number to ring, (111)
The telephonist will put you through to a nurse practitioner who will arrange either a telephone or face to face consultation with the duty doctor at the Community Hospital (St Andrews), or have a home visit organised as necessary.
Details of these contacts are sent to your own doctor.
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.
