Morning Surgery

All appointments will be over the telephone or through video link using Near Me (see Home Page for instructions on how to use this service). If, after that conversation with a GP, they want to see you the GP will arrange for a time for you to come into the surgery.

Open access Monday   – Friday 8.30am -10am

We are running an Open Access Surgery every morning but instead of coming into the surgery we ask you to call us on 01360 440515 between 8.30am & 10am and you will be asked by our Reception Team why you are calling. They will either put you down for a call back that morning or arrange an afternoon appointment time for you. Although we endeavour to call patients as quickly as we can, on busy days you may need to wait some time.

Afternoon Surgery

(Appointments only) Monday – Friday afternoons 2.30pm - 5pm

You can book a telephone or Near Me Video appointment for a specific time and doctor in the afternoons via reception or on line when available.

Early Morning Surgery - This Clinic is currently suspended

(Appointments only)  Tuesday morning 7.30am-8.20am

For patients who are employed and are unable to attend during working hours we offer an early morning surgery. Appointments for this surgery must be booked in advance.

Chaperones

All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present  for any  consultation, procedure or examination if  they feel they need  one. The chaperone can be the patient’s own choice. However, on some occasions a formal trained chaperone is required who could be a member of the practice staff.  Where possible we would ask you to discuss when booking your appointment.

Training Practice

Balfron HC is a training practice, which means we are accredited to train doctors in General Practice. This includes GP Registrars (qualified doctors training to become GPs) as well as medical students.  Sometimes these doctors will sit in on consultations. You will be informed of this in advance, and have the right to decline their presence if you wish. Occasionally you may be asked if a trainee can video your consultation – a consent form should be signed by you, but again, you can decline this if you wish.

Cancellations

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
