Ladies between the age of 16-64 can attend Boots Pharmacy in Beauly if they feel they have a urine infection and can be treated by the pharmacist.

 


Due to an increased workload it may not be possible to always see your usual GP for appointments.


We will try to enable people to book in advance with a named GP, however there can be a wait for a named GP of up to a few weeks. If you are unable to wait for a named GP we have asked the reception staff to offer you the choice of waiting to see your named GP or to see another GP in the practice.


We can only accept patients booking one appointment in advance with a GP.


If you need to see a GP urgently, we have a limited number of on-the-day appointments available. We cannot guarantee who you will be seen by - this may be by a GP or our experienced advanced nurse practitioner. On occasion it may be necessary for one of the duty team to call you back for more details to establish the nature of your problem and to ensure you are allocated an appointment in a suitable time-frame.
