Emergency cover in Glasgow is provided by GEMS (Glasgow Emergency Medical Service). In an emergency outwith surgery hours, please telephone 620 0333. An answering machine will tell you how to contact the out of hours service. This will normally be the NHS 24 number - 111. The website of NHS 24 is www.nhs24.com and this can be accessed for more information.
Our local GEMS centre is in the Victoria Infirmary, below the Casualty Department. If you require medical attention, you will usually be asked to attend the centre. Free transport will be arranged if necessary. Housecalls will still be available for the housebound or seriously ill.
Please bear in mind that all emergency cover is designed to deal with medical conditions that are too serious to wait until the next working day. We offer urgent appointments every day at the surgery, and would much rather see you ourselves, during the working day, where possible.
