When We Are Closed
This surgery, like all others in East Lothian, has transferred responsibility for emergency treatment to Lothian Health Board. It is provided by NHS24 and Lothian Unscheduled Care Service. In a serious emergency call 999 as normal, but otherwise NHS24 (08454 24 24 24) who will arrange appropriate treatment, which may be advice, an appointment at the out-of-hours centre at Roodlands Hospital or the Royal Infirmary, or a visit by a doctor, nurse or ambulance technician.
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 constitute an emergency.
