Tranent Medical Practice

Festive Season Arrangements

December 21st 2018 to January 4th 2018

The health centre will be closed on December 25th and 26th, and on January  1st and 2nd. We are open as normal from 08:00 to 18:00 on all other working days during the festive season.


We experience a high demand for on-the-day appointments over the festive fortnight, and to enable us to meet this demand we will be offering Express appointments only throughout this period. As a result of this we will not be able to offer GP Advance appointments from 21st December to January 4th inclusive. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to patients who would normally prefer this type of appointment, as they may not be able to see the GP of their choice during this period.


We will have Advance appointments available again from Monday 7th January, and these will be available to book from Monday 24th December.  


We would ask patients that have an appointment that they no longer need to contact us to cancel it, or to cancel it on-line or by text message. There is always a high demand for appointments at this time of year, and this enables us to offer any unwanted appointments to other patients.  


If you require medical assistance when the practice is closed you should contact NHS 24 on 111, or in the case of emergencies phone 999.
