Lochview Medical Practice


How to make an appointment

We run all our surgeries by an appointment only system between the hours of 8.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday.

Appointments can be booked by telephoning the surgery in advance or on the day you wish to be seen.

You can view and cancel appointments at your convenience if you register online using Patient Access for appointments.  For information on how to register for online services, please visit the Online Services page.

The appointment booking service is currently only available for routine Physio assessment appointments.

We try to make sure you see the doctor of your choice but if they are not available we may ask you to see another doctor.

GP appointments are available during the hours listed below, but may vary due to other commitments, holidays and to address patient needs.

Monday 8.30am – 10.30am and 1.40pm – 4.30pm

Advanced Nurse Practitioner

The advanced nurse practitioner is an experienced and highly educated Registered Nurse who manages the complete clinical care for their patient.  They can assess, diagnose, treat and prescribe for patients with complex, multi-dimensional problems.  They have the authority to refer and admit patients where clinically appropriate.

Extended hours

Extended hours appointments are available  early morning or evenings, depending on GP and nurse availability. These may be more suitable for people who are working during the day. To see a doctor or nurse please telephone us or come into the surgery to book an appointment.

Home visits

If you are too ill to come to the surgery and you require a visit at home, please call the surgery before 10am. Home visits take up much more of a doctor or advanced nurse practitioner’s time than a consultation in the surgery, so if you are mobile please come into the surgery to be seen.
