Welcome to Aberfoyle and Buchlyvie Medical Centre
For the safety of our community, staff and our patients we have taken steps to radically reduce footfall in our surgery and at this moment the doors to the surgery are locked. We ask all patients to consider using www.nhsinform.scot for general health information and self care advice.
If you need to see a GP please continue to contact the surgery and you will be given a telephone appointment. The member of staff answering your call will take some information from you about your reason for an appointment and pass this to the GP. This is to allow the GP to prioritise the requests.
You can continue to order your prescriptions in the usual way. If you collect your prescriptions from the dispensary in Buchlyvie there is a doorbell at the front entrance to ring. Your prescription will then be passed to you through the window.
Attending the Surgery
If you have been asked to attend the surgery please wear a face covering whilst attending your appointment. If you do not have a face covering, a face mask will be given when you attend. Please arrive at the time of your appointment, please do not arrive early for your appointment
