Seeing your GP - Important Notice
To prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, Dalhousie Medical Practice has needed to reduce the number of patients entering our building and has had to limit face to face access to the practice.
However, we still want you to contact us by telephone if you need to speak to a GP and are worried about your health. We are always there for you. To hear about how our service has changed and how you might be able to treat yourself at home using the NHS Inform self help guides, please take a moment to listen to this short video about access your GP during this time https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8V14lrcHAA
Thank you from the team at Dalhousie Medical Practice.
