Changes due to COVID-19

We have had to make a number of changes to the way we operate and the services that we provide.

We have also moved to alternate premises within the Kirkintilloch Health & Care Centre as the Health Board try to deal with the increasing demand as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Finding Your Way GuideEvery year, millions of us visit our GP with minor health problems that can be easily resolved without a doctor’s appointment. It is estimated that every year, 50 million visits to the GP are made for minor ailments such as coughs and colds, mild eczema, and athlete’s foot. ​Many health care problems do not need a doctor or nurse.
