At the surgery

Please try to arrive in plenty of time - remember Dumfries gets busy, particularly at beginning and end of the school day.

Remember to check in when you arrive - either with the auto check-in machine or speak to the receptionist.

If you are late, we may not be able to see you as this will affect the running of the rest of the surgery and delay other patients.

Please dress appropriately if you think you might need examined, and think whether a urine sample might be useful.

Please turn mobile phones off when in the surgery.

If you have an appointment for yourself and have children, think whether you might require blood tests or examinations which might be upsetting for a child.
