We would ask that you check the results of any blood tests by ringing the surgery between 2.00 and 4.00 pm. Most blood and urine results take one week to come back and be interpreted by the doctor. Some blood tests results may take up to four weeks if they involve more complicated analysis. If you need to book a test, please phone (01361) 883373.

Works Commencing 13th February 2017 for approximately 16 weeks. 

We are pleased to announce that NHS Borders has secured funding to complete a renovation project within the Knoll Health Centre. Over the next few months building works will be ongoing to reconfigure and upgrade several areas including the waiting room, consulting corridor, GP & Health Board reception areas together with renovation of the building situated to the rear of the car park. 

The partners and staff at Duns Medical Group are delighted that these improvements will provide us with an additional consulting room and significantly improved exclusive office space which will help us meet the future needs of our patients and local community. After a long planning process we are grateful to NHS Borders in securing this funding and working closely with us in developing the plans. 

Whilst we hope to keep disruption to a minimum, there will obviously be some inconvenience to health centre users. We hope this is minimal in comparison to the benefits of the improved premises. 

Plans will be available to view in the Health Centre. 

If you require any further information please ask at Reception. 


From the 2nd May 2016 we are delighted to welcome Dr Fiona Megahy as our new GP Partner. Dr Megahy will be working Tuesdays and Fridays and appointments to see her are now available to book.


We have recently set up the Online Ordering Service for Repeat Prescriptions via the Patient Access website (there is also an App available). In order to begin using this service patients must come in to Reception and sign the Terms and Conditions before log on details will be given. Please note children under the age of 16 will not be signed up for this service. Further information is available from Reception.


Two practices operate independently from the Health Centre. When attending for any reason, please give your name to our receptionist. Please report to the second window, below our blue practice sign.
