The medical practice will be closed for the following NHS Borders public holidays
Christmas – Thursday 25th and Friday 26th December 2014
New Year – Thursday 1st January and Friday 2nd January 2015
The surgery will therefore be closed from 6pm on Wednesday 24th December to 8am on Monday 29th December and again from 6pm on Wednesday 31st December to 8am on Monday 5th January. During these times – urgent medical advice can be obtained from NHS24 by phoning 111.
It is likely that the practice will be particularly busy on Monday 22nd December, Monday 29th December and Monday 5th January. Please assist us in managing our workload on these days by contacting the practice early in the morning with appointment or visit requests so that these can be triaged by clinical staff.
Patients are reminded to plan ahead for surgery closures and potential adverse weather by ensuring adequate medication supplies for the festive season. For convenience, we will usually issue repeat medication early during this period. We would like to remind patients that the practice requires 2 working days to process medication requests. Additional time is required for the pharmacy to dispense your requests.
