National Screening tests

The NHS offers a number of screening tests aimed either at detecting precancerous conditions [cervical smear test] or very early cancers [breast screening and bowel screening]
We strongly advise our patients to take up these tests. They are all by invitation and a letter will be sent to those who are eligible. 

If you have lost your invitation or think you have been missed out or have missed an appointment, you can still have your tests. Please speak to reception, the practice nurse or the doctor.  For replacement of bowel screening kits you can phone  0800 0121 833

When We Are Closedclosed_sign

If you are ill and need urgent medical advice when the surgery is closed, call NHS 24 on 111. If you call the surgery number during these times you will hear a message asking you to call NHS 24.

In the first instance trained nurses will deal with calls to this service. If you need to be seen by a doctor this will be arranged for you.

All calls to this service are recorded for medico-legal purposes.

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 shortness of breath, among other things, constitute an emergency.
