Please see the opening times page for details of our surgery hours. We also offer slots with the GP where no appointment is necessary and patients are seen in order of arrival.
Appointments can be made for specific treatments or examinations at Carradale.
Evening consultations (18:30 to 19:30) with a doctor are available at Carradale Surgery on Thursdays. These appointments are particularly aimed at patients unable to visit the surgery during normal opening hours, but can be booked by anyone.
These may be booked through reception, and are normally offered on three mornings (Monday, Tuesday and Thursday) and two afternoons (Thursday & Friday). Extended late appointments are normally offered between 17:30 - 19:00 on a Thursday. If you wish to speak to a practice nurse, please phone 01583 431376. The best times are between 12:00 - 13:00 Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
You should use the above number to contact the doctor, or other practice staff, during reception opening hours, when your call will usually be answered at the surgery. If there is no-one at the surgery, your call will transfer after 6 rings to the home or mobile number of the doctor. Occasionally the doctor may be outwith the mobile reception area, and if you are unable to make contact quickly in the event of a life-threatening emergency, you should call an ambulance on 999.
Chaperones / Interpreters
A chaperone is available for patients who are undergoing certain types of examination or procedures.
The practice is able to obtain the services of an interpreter during consultations if sufficient notice is given.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
