Welcome to Dalblair Medical Practice
The Surgery is now offering Near Me video consultations. The doctor will discuss with you if one of these appointments may be suitable for you.
If you are offered an appointment please click the start button to access the service either using Google Chrome or Safari, and follow the instructions.
Due to the current covid 19 pandemic, to help protect our patients and staff you can access our new online service called EConsult. This new online service is available via our website 24 hours a day. EConsult is an online service for patients looking to contact the GPs.
As of Monday the 13th December 2021 the way the administration team screen patients requesting a face to face appointment is changing. We do apologise for this but all GP surgeries in Scotland have been mandated to ask these questions by Scottish Government.

2. Do you or any member of your household/family have suspected COVID-19 and are waiting for a COVID-19 test result?
3. Have you travelled internationally in the last 10 days to a country that is on the Government red list?

Access & Facilities
Access to the building is via Dalblair Road. We have one disabled parking space, which is placed next to the ramp, which conforms to safety standards set for disabled access.
Once inside the reception desk is lit so those patients with visual impairment can recognise it. The desk also has a low part so those patients in wheelchairs can communicate without having to get out of their chair. We have one purpose built disabled toilet. Any patient requiring information (including this leaflet) in large print can ask at reception and we will try our best to accommodate them, similarly, any patient requiring special assistance for any other reason should let us know in advance and we will do our best to make appropriate arrangements.
There is no public parking in our car park. If you do not have a disabled badge for your car we respectfully ask that you do not use the space within the Practice car park as this prevents those patients who are entitled great difficulty. Please be a caring patient and park in a local public car park rather than forcing another member of the public to struggle due to their disability.
