You will be registered with the practice and you may make an appointment with any of the partners. It is sometimes difficult for the doctors to keep to their schedule due to unforeseen emergencies or problems in the surgery - every effort is made to keep appointments to time.
If, however, you feel you have been waiting for an unreasonable amount of time, please speak to one of the reception staff. Should there be the likelihood of a prolonged unforeseen delay, patients will be informed by the reception staff.
If you require an urgent appointment, please call at reception or telephone Pitlochry (01796) 472558. Urgent cases will always be seen promptly but it may not always be possible to see the doctor of your choice.
Extended hours surgery
We hold an extended hours surgery starting at 5.30pm for patients who commute and cannot always get into the surgery during the day. This is usually held on a Wednesday evening, but is sometimes changed due to the GP cover available. Check with reception when booking your appointment which night it is on. These appointments are bookable in advance only and are not for repeat prescriptions or appointments requiring examinations or procedures. Telephone Pitlochry (01796) 472558 to make an appointment.
