Fochabers Medical Practice works with G-Med and NHS24 to provide emergency cover during evenings, weekends and public holidays. If you have a medical problem which you feel cannot wait until the health centre re-opens, please telephone the health centre number 01343 820247.
Your call will be diverted to NHS24 automatically, and will be answered by a trained nurse. The nurse may give advice, if appropriate, or will direct your call to the doctor on call. You may be asked to attend Dr Gray’s Hospital for treatment, if this is appropriate.
If your condition is LIFE-THREATENING ring 999.
