Your questions, our answers
Here are some of the most common questions we are asked by our patients, and our answers to them.
If you become ill and feel unable to wait until your GP practice opens in the morning, you should call NHS 24 (www.nhs24.com) on 111, or in an emergency dial 999. Read more about out-of-hours care.
20% of GP appointments could be dealt with by another healthcare professional. Our eConsult service can help direct you to the most appropriate service or person, and it also includes self-help advice for hundreds of common conditions. You can even submit a secure message direct to your GP, with a response by the end of the next working day.
If you prefer to get health information and advice on the phone, you can also call NHS Inform on 0800 22 44 88.
