Other Information

Public Telephone

There is a public telephone for your convenience. This is situated at the back of the waiting room next to the public toilets.

The Victoria Hospital

The hospital is next door to the health centre and is a community hospital, which means that your own doctor is in charge of your care there. There are medical, surgical and maternity inpatient beds, also an x-ray department, a physiotherapy department and casualty. If you have an Accident or injury, you should attend at casualty, not the health centre.

If you require medical advice when the Health Centre is closed you should first telephone NHS 24 on 111. If they advise you to attend the emergency centre, this will be in the Victoria Hospital. You will be seen by an emergency nurse practitioner and a doctor may also be called in. All dressings, stitch removals, etc, will be done by the nursing staff at the hospital under the supervision of your own doctor.
