Cairn Patient Group
Unfortunately, our PPG has been closed but we will use surveys and a new waiting room display system to communicate wit patients.

Out of Hours
When the surgery is closed and you are too ill to wait until it re-opens, contact NHS 24 on 111

We aim to have appointments available to be booked up to 6 weeks ahead but sometimes that is not possible. Please either book online or telephone 709709 to request an appointment

Home Visits
If you are unable to come to the surgery, the doctor may visit you at home if this is medically appropriate. (Patients who are housebound or too ill to come to the Practice).  We ask that patients do not abuse this service as a home visit takes up approximately 4 to 5 normal appointment slots

Musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders

Musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders covers any injury, disease or problem relating to our muscles, bones or joints and are very common.

Over a million people visit their GP with a musculoskeletal disorder in Scotland each year.

The Musculosketal Zone has been developed with the help of patients, physiotherapists and doctors to bring together the best possible information and advice for preventing, treating and recovering from musculoskeletal disorders at home and in the workplace.


The MSK service is now available as a free tablet and smartphone app featuring:

  • Exercises and video clips to help you get moving safely.
  • Integration with your diary to remind you to exercises and/or attend any appointments.
  • A log tool to help you keep track of your progress.

The app is available to download through Google Play and the App Store.
