From September 25th the Health Centre will be closed on Tuesdays from 13:00 to 14:00 for staff training. The one hour per week closure has been agreed with NHS Lothian, and will enable the practice staff to undertake a range of training and development activities that will help improve the service delivered to patients.
During this one hour period the doors to the Health Centre will be closed, and the phone lines will be switched to an answer message. The doors and phone lines will re-open at 14:00.
In the event of a medically urgent issue that cannot wait until the Health Centre re-opens at 14:00 patients can contact the practice on 07974 072306. In the event of a medical emergency patients should phone 999, as during any other time of the day or night.
If patients want to drop off repeat prescription requests during the closure period they can use the external letterbox at the Health Centre door.
