The medical practice will be closed for Christmas on Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th December and on Wednesday 1st and Thursday 2nd January 2014 for New Year. Read more about arrangements for the festive season

The practice would like to inform patients that we will be closed over the following periods for the allocated NHS Borders Public Holidays –

  • From 6pm Tuesday 24th December until 8am on Friday 27th December 2013
  • From 6pm on Tuesday 31st December 2013 until 8am on Friday 2nd January 2014

For urgent medical problems during the above times, please contact NHS24 on 111 (freephone). This number is also available on a recorded message from the surgery out with our normal working hours.

It is likely that Monday 23rd December, Friday 27th December, Monday 30th December, Friday 2nd January and Monday 6th January will be particularly busy days at the practice. Please plan ahead and order repeat medication items in advance of the festive fortnight to help avoid unnecessary workload pressures for the practice. We would like to remind patients that the practice requires 2 working days to process prescription requests. Additional time is required for the pharmacy to dispense your requests.


Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to wish all our patients a happy and healthy 2014!
