What is the cost?
The service is entirely free to NHS patients. We simply need your CHI (Community Health Index) number, which we provide to the health board, and they reimburse the practice directly for our time. We need is your CHI number before the appointment can be arranged.
What is a CHI Number?
This is your unique NHS number. This is on your prescription, NHS card, appointment card or you can simply request this from your own GP Practice . You will need this number before you can book an appointment.

We are based in a number of sites. Currently during our pilot, we are operating from our sites in Livingston West Lothian, East Craig’s Edinburgh and Glasgow University Practices. You can choose any of these site that suits you best.
We hope to provide an appointment within 2 weeks. Our Appointments are available 4 weeks in advance, they are released on a weekly basis. We currently only operate on Saturday morning.
