We have 7 GP Partners attached to Tayview Medical Practice. Details of each partner, and their interests, can be found below.
We are also fortunate to have medical students attached to our practice for short periods. With the patient's consent, they may also consult with the GP and learn about general practice.
At times, such as when a doctor is on annual leave, the Practice will use a locum doctor in order to assist the Practice. Locum doctors are fully qualified general practitioners and have been fully certified by NHS health boards to enable them to locum at practices.
On discovering that you are pregnant, your first port of call should be your midwife. You don’t need to see your GP. Patients should contact the midwifery team by dialling 01334 465848 who will assist with arranging your first appointment at the practice.
If, on discovering that you are pregnant, you decide that you do not wish to continue with the pregnancy, you should contact the practice on 01382 543251 and request a consultation with a GP to discuss your options further.
Once you have booked with your midwife, your care may be midwife-led, consultant-led or a mixture of both depending on your circumstances.
