Cairn Patient GroupUnfortunately, our PPG has been closed but we will use surveys and a new waiting room display system to communicate with patients.
Out of Hours When the surgery is closed and you are too ill to wait until it re-opens, contact NHS 24 on 111
Appointments We aim to have appointments available to be booked up to 6 weeks ahead but sometimes that is not possible. Please either book online or telephone 709709 to request an appointment
Home Visits If you are unable to come to the surgery, the doctor may visit you at home if this is medically appropriate. (Patients who are housebound or too ill to come to the Practice). We ask that patients do not abuse this service as a home visit takes up approximately 4 to 5 normal appointment slots
If you are visiting Inverness and have lost/forgotten essential medication then you should, in the first instance, present at any Pharmacy. In most cases, the Pharmacist can issue emergency medication without the need for you to see a GP.
For certain medications, a GP appointment will still be needed. You can request a GP appointment with any Practice in the area but you may not get an appointment the same day.

List all the medicines you need to order with the name of each medicine, strength and dosage required. If you want your prescription to be collected by a Pharmacy (Chemist) write the name of the Pharmacy on the request slip, if not already printed on it.
