Important Notice!

We have a GP on long term sick leave so we are running with one less Doctor. This is having an impact on the practice and the number of appointments available. We continually try for Locum GPs to help, but these are not forthcoming. Our GPs are doing extra to help but holidays, training etc will only make this worse.

Please book appointments for fit notes, reviews etc in plenty of time and leave the on the day appointments for urgent medical conditions. You can book up to 4 weeks in advance. If you wish to see a particular Doctor, you may have to wait longer.

GP Home visits will only be for emergencies and housebound patients. Prescriptions will take longer to process as these have to be checked by the Doctor prior to signing.

If you need a BP check, do not use the Doctors appointments we have Nurses appointments available for this. This could free up valuable Doctors appointments. Use your local pharmacy also as they are qualified to give advice on certain issues. Eye Care Ayrshire was launched on 1st February for eye problems such as sore, itchy, water, stick or red eyes there is no need to see a GP or attend A&E. The Local Opticians are now the person to assess your eye problems and they should be contacted in the first instance.

We apologise for the impact this is having and we are trying our best to accommodate where we can, so please be patient with us.

The NHS is facing a massive shortage of Doctors wanting to come into General Practice. We have raised the lack of GPs and GP Locums with NHS Ayrshire & Arran and would appreciate you taking the time to contact your local MP/MSP and make them aware of the issues GP Practices are facing. Some Practices in Ayrshire have had to close and hand back their patient lists to the health board.

NHS Ayrshire & Arran
