When We Are Closed
Emergency cover in Glasgow is provided by GPOOH Service (Greater Glasgow & Clyde Out of Hours Service). In an emergency outside surgery hours, please telephone 0141 429 0913. An answering machine will tell you how to contact the out-of-hours service.
This will normally be the NHS 24 number - 111. The website of NHS 24 is www.nhs24.com and this can be accessed for more information.
Our local GPOOH Service centres are in the New Victoria Hospital, through an entrance from the main car park at the rear of the building or in the foyer of the new Royal Hospital for Children next to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital. If you require medical attention, you will usually be asked to attend the centre. Free transport will be arranged if necessary. House calls will still be available for the housebound or seriously ill.
Please bear in mind that all emergency cover is designed to deal with medical conditions that are too serious to wait until the next working day. We offer urgent appointments every day at the surgery and would much rather see you ourselves, during the working day, where possible.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
