Patient Update


GP cover is likely to remain unpredictable for the foreseeable future due to the Practice still being short of a full time partner.

We feel the best way forward is to continue with our current system of open access at the Wallacetown site every morning from 8am to 9.45am over the next few months at least.

This is to try and make it easier to see a GP on any given day and to cope with the high demand.

We appreciate your patience during this challenging time.

Patients who fail to attend 

Due to the dramatic increase in non attended GP and Nurse appointments, Family Medical Group have now implemented the following policy;

If you fail to attend 3 appointments within a 6 month period, you will be removed from our practice list.

Following the first and second non attended appointment, we will send you a letter.

Should a third non attendance occur during the 6 month period, you will then receive a letter advising you that you have been removed from our list. This letter will include details of how to register with another GP practice.

You will have 8 days from the date of the third letter before you are removed.

It is very unfortunate that we have had to implement these measures, but in todays climate where the demand for appointments is ever increasing, patients who book then fail to attend appointments are delaying the opportunity for others to see a health professional.


Scottish Bowel Screening Service

This is a very important service as bowel cancer is the third most common cancer in Scotland.

The service is open to any man or woman aged between 50-74years.

You should automatically be sent a testing kit every 2 years around the time of your birthday. If this does not happen please call 0800 0121 833 to request a kit.

Full details of the Service can be found by clicking the link below.

When We Are Closedclosed_sign

Between 18:00 - 08:00 Monday to Friday, all day Saturday and Sunday, every public holiday and any Dundee wide protected training afternoon, please call NHS 24 on 111.  A nurse will deal with your call and contact the out-of-hours doctor if necessary. (This number will be available on the practice answer machine)

NHS 24 is an essential part of the Tayside out of hour’s arrangements. If you or someone you care for is unwell and you feel you can’t wait until the Practice re-opens then you can call NHS 24 and speak to an experienced nurse or health information advisors who will assess the situation and advise you on what to do next, for example, see another health professional or explain how to look after yourself at home.

Remember that housecalls will only be made to seriously ill/housebound patients.

Please note that the out-of-hours service is strictly for emergencies only.

Out-of-hours cover is now the responsibility of Tayside Primary Care Trust – contact them at 423000 or if you want further information.


Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
