By doing this we can save you having to find a local Doctor / GP where waiting times may be quite significant. We can then deliver your medication (if required) to your hotel or temporary holiday accommodation the next day for your convenience.

If you are staying in a hotel or other temporary accommodation in the Central belt of Scotland then our private Doctor / GP (Dr Lifson – more information on him by clicking here) can come to your location and provide a private and confidential consultation.
