When we are closed, emergency medical cover is provided by Tayside Out of Hours Service. This operates from 18:00 – 08:00 weekdays, and at weekends from 18:00 on Friday until 08:00 on Monday and any Public Holidays. On our PLT days the Practice will be closed between 12.30pm and 6pm.  You contact this service via NHS24 on 111.

Your details will be passed to an experienced nurse who will refer you to a doctor if necessary.


Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or severe shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
