Due to the demand on our services and reduced human resources as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic we are currently having to modify some of our services as advertised on our website. Please DO NOT come to the surgery unless you have been advised to do so by a member of our clinical team or if you have a pre-arranged appointment. If you need any further detail regarding any of our services please contact us for advice on 01294 441441 general enquiries.

Medicines are NOT in short supply. Please only order the medicines that you need. Do NOT order all medicines every time.
Pharmacies are extremely busy so please allow at least FIVE days after ordering medicines before collecting from your nominated pharmacy.

Housebound & Older People

Staying at Home

If home is where you want to be, it’s essential that you and your carers have as much support as possible. Caring can be hard work, both physically and emotionally. It’s not always easy to ask for help, and many people find it impossible. However, it’s important that your carers save enough energy to do the things that only they can do, such as spending time talking to you and supporting you. They can pass on some jobs to other people, where possible.

District Nurses

District Nurses carry out many roles for housebound patients, including:

  • General nursing procedures and investigations
  • Post-surgery care
  • Assessment of patients’ needs
  • Care for terminally ill patients
  • Loaning of equipment
  • Looking after wounds and leg ulcers
  • Educating patients about self-care

Referrals can be made by a Doctor or nurse at the practice, patients themselves or by carers and family members.

Free Personal and Nursing Care

Free personal care is available for everyone aged 65 and over in Scotland who have been assessed by the local authority as needing it.

Free nursing care is available for people of any age who have been assessed as requiring nursing care services.
