Your GP practice will close on 24th, 25th, 26th and 27th of December and again on 31st December, 1st, 2nd and 3rd of January.
If you become unwell on these days and can't wait for your surgery to re-open or, have a more serious illness that can't be treated by a pharmacist, then you can get assistance by calling NHS 24 on 111.
If you do not have this number to hand, you can call your GP practice. You will either hear a recorded message or your call will automatically be diverted
to NHS 24. When you call NHS 24 they will put you through to a health professional who will talk to you about your symptoms and arrange for you to see a GP if necessary.

When you have an illness or injury that just won’t go away, make an appointment to see your General Practitioner (GP).
Your GP will carry out detailed examinations and provide advice, information and prescriptions. Your GP also provides routine monitoring and management of ongoing health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease and can also provide most contraceptive services, minor surgery, maternity services, immunisations and screening (e.g. smears and child health).
Your doctor can also refer you to a specialist healthcare professional for tests and treatment.
Everyone needs to register at their local GP surgery. To find your nearest GP practice, please enter your Postcode in the search box to the right.
