When The Surgery Is Closed NHS 24
Carmondean Medical Group is closed from:
6.00pm to 8.00am Monday to Thursday
6.00pm on Friday to 8.00am on Monday
We are also closed on certain public holidays as determined by the Health Board (see our website for an up to date list)
If you need advice, or the services of a Doctor when the Heath Centre is closed, you should telephone NHS 24 on: 111
Your call will be answered by an NHS 24 nurse advisor. The nurse advisor will ask you about your symptoms and advise you what you should do next. Should you need to see a GP out of hours, the nurse advisor will arrange this through the Lothian Unscheduled Care Service which operates a number of Primary Care Centre’s including one based at St John’s Hospital
NHS 24 nurse advisors are also able to offer appropriate advice during the normal working day—you will receive full nurse –led consultation, although you may then be advised to contact your general practice for further assessment.
