When We Are Closed
The Out of Hours Service in Lochaber is provided by the Mid-Highland Community Health Partnership and operates at weekends and public holidays, from 6:00 pm in the evening until 08:00 am the following day and all day Saturday and Sunday.
This service offers telephone advice from NHS 24.
As a consequence an appointment may be offered to attend the Belford Hospital – where you can see a GP – or a home visit will be made, if necessary.
The normal surgery telephone number will get you through to the service during these hours. Our number is 01397 702947
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 24
PLEASE NOTE THAT FROM THE 20TH OF APRIL 2014 THIS NUMBER WILL BE 111
Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
