Appointments Update

We are following current Government Guidelines on Covid-19 restrictions.  For all appointments, urgent and routine, call on the Practice number 01334 476840 and the Reception Team will advise on the best person for you to speak to.  They may arrange a telephone consultation initially.  If a face to face appointment is needed, this can be arranged for you.  We have designated post boxes where you can leave prescription requests and samples.  The Admin Team can be contacted by calling 01334 476840 if you need assistance after arriving at the Practice if the Reception Desk is unmanned.    Although staff and patients are no longer required to wear face coverings in non-clinical areas and the 2-metre physical distancing has been removed in non-clinical areas, staff and patients are still required to continue to wear Fluid Resistant Surgical Masks (FRSM) and adhere to 2-metre physical distancing in clinical areas.




Online Access

We have temporarily suspended Online Access for making routine appointments.  Our online repeat medication service remains unaffected, however in line with guidance from the Scottish Government, we are not issuing any repeat medication more than 14 days before its due date; please re-order this when you have a two week supply left.

For patients new to the area and needing to register permanently with the Practice, during this current crisis and to avoid the need to attend the Practice in person, we will be able to accept registration documentation by email.  Please visit our Registration page for information and advice as to how to do this.

Pipeland organised a successful “parkrun takeover” on Saturday the 12th of November at Craigtoun Country Park.  Most of the volunteering posts were covered by Practice staff and there was a great turn out of runners – 181 people ran.  Well done everyone!
