IMPORTANT CHANGES TO APPOINTMENTS AT NIDDRIE MEDICAL PRACTICE

We are changing the way we offer appointments.  You will only be able to book an appointment on the day you wish to be seen and these will all either be offered as a telephone or video consultation.  If once triaged by a GP they feel they need to see you face to face they will ask you to come into the surgery and will arrange a suitable time with you.

From 1st February 2021 all GP appointments will be bookable online.  We will also move to an emergency service only between the hours of 4pm – 6pm Monday – Friday.
