Fife’s GP Practices are committed to providing patients with the highest quality care. As part of this, GP Practices participate in a number of Protected Learning Time (PLT) sessions throughout the year which allows them to provide access to training for the whole practice team. GP Practices in Fife are taking part in a PLT session on Tuesday 4 June 2024 between 1.00pm and 6.00pm.

During the afternoon practices taking part will be closed.

People who already have existing appointments booked for these afternoons should attend as arranged, unless advised otherwise by their GP surgery.

Please be assured access to urgent care for patients of surgeries taking part will continue throughout this time.

During those hours on 4 June, Urgent Care Services Fife (Out Of Hours Service) will provide urgent care and support to patients whose practices are closed.

This care can be delivered via telephone consultation, assessment in one of Fife's urgent care centres or a home visit when assessed as being clinically appropriate.

Patients or Community Pharmacies who require to contact a participating GP Practice urgently during the time they are closed for PLT should call the Urgent Care Service on 01592 729250.

After 6.00pm, patients from all of Fife's surgeries can call NHS 24 on 111, as per normal process.

GP surgeries will resume their usual working hours again on Wednesday 5 June 2024.
