It has come to our attention that some patients in Tayside have recently received telephone calls from an unknown source querying the medication they are currently prescribed. The patients are informed that if they do not share this information with the caller, their medication will cease.
Please be assured that NHS Tayside will never ask you for such information and your medication will not be stopped.
If you have any suspicions around a phone call you have received please contact us directly so we can notify NHS Tayside, as they may be able to establish a pattern, and we would also suggest that you report this to the Police.
Do you have any used postage stamps at home? We are collecting stamps to raise money for donkey sanctuaries. Please hand them into Reception or pop into the box in the waiting area. Thank you kindly.
May we remind our patients that GP appointments are 10 minutes long. If you have more than one problem or would like a longer discussion then please let us know when making your appointment.
Monday 27 July and Monday 12 October 2015 are Public Holidays. We are open 9.00-12.30 pm only and ALL calls are re-directed to NHS 24.
If you require urgent medical attention on any of these dates please contact NHS 24 on 111
