 Comrie Medical Practice is committed to supporting our patients and staff in providing the best possible care.

 To enable us to do this, we have made the decision of as of today (Monday 16 March 2020) to postpone all non-urgent appointments and services. If you have a pre-booked appointment and think you do not need to be seen urgently, please cancel.

 If you have developed a continuous cough OR a high temperature over 37.8 degrees OR experiencing breathlessness but are well and managing then please self isolate at home for 7 days, if you are unwell with these symptoms then please phone the surgery.

 To reduce the footfall in to the surgeries we ask only patients with booked appointments to attend.  Please order your prescriptions over the phone, online or post in the letterbox.  Any enquiries or requests please call the practice instead of attending.

 We will continue to keep you updated and thank you all for your continued support at this challenging time.


The following dates are Public Holidays. The Medical Centre will only be open in the morning for pre-booked appointments on these days.  All telephone calls on these dates will be transferred to NHS24:

Monday 6 April 2020

Monday 13 April 2020

Friday 8 May 2020

Monday 25 May 2020

Monday 27 July 2020

Monday 5 October 2020

Friday 25 December 2020

Monday 28 December 2020

If you require urgent attention during this time please dial 111.



As Comrie Medical Centre no longer has a female GP in the practice, Dr Elizabeth Hills has kindly offered to do a Women's Only clinic every Thursday from January until mid March.

If you have a significant problem and would like to see Dr Hills, please make the Reception staff aware at the time of booking your appointment.

Community Midwives

Community midwives attend ladies at home or in clinics and run classes for antenatal and post-natal care. They act as a link between the hospital midwifery service and our practice. They are available on Fridays by appointment.

If you wish to contact a midwife about any problems please use the following numbers:

For URGENT matters please telephone 01738 473425. This is staffed 24 hours a day and is the labour ward main line at Perth Royal Infirmary.

For NON-URGENT matters please telephone 01738 473406 and leave a message. This is an answering machine and the midwife will call you back.

If your baby has a FEEDING problem please telephone 01738 473436 and leave a message. This is staffed 24 hours a day by the Red Team postnatal ward at Perth Royal Infirmary.

Community Nurses

These Community Nurses provide nursing care to those patients at home who are housebound and unable to attend the surgery. They are very experienced and give nursing advice to the Doctors and patients. You can contact them directly by telephoning the Medical Centre on Comrie 670283

What they do; The District Nurse is a specialist in homecare nursing who works with your Doctor and other services in order to provide the most effective high standard of care for patients. The following are examples of the types of care District Nurses provide:

  • Assessment of health needs and promotion of independence
  • Wound assessment and care
  • Leg ulcer management
  • Symptom management
  • Palliative and end of life care
  • Prescribe & administer medications & treatments where appropriate
  • Post operative care
  • Health Promotion/advice
  • Continence advice
  • General support and advice regarding other services
  • Referral to other services

Am I housebound?

Please remember that the District Nursing service is first and foremost a service for people who are housebound. You are not housebound if you are able to leave your home with minimal assistance e.g. assisted/unassisted visits to the doctor, dentist, hairdresser, supermarket. There are some circumstances in which it may be more appropriate for you to receive care in your own home. The District Nurse will be able to discuss this with you.
