Callander Medical Practice

There is a Callander Medical Practice Facebook page with updates from the practice, and their web site can be found at

November 2020 update: "Due to a significant rise in positive Covid cases with community spread in Callander and the surrounding area, in addition to discussion with Public Health we have decided to make changes at the practice. We cannot take the risk that increased footfall within the building creates.

We are cancelling all but clinically essential face to face nurse appointments till further notice. Please note this is not due to any outbreak within the practice but instead due to high infection rate in the town and surrounding area.

We are still working hard to provide care in the community but we need to do this in as safe a way as possible to protect our patients and staff. Please telephone the practice and you can schedule a telephone consultation. Should your GP decide they need to see you face to face they will schedule a time for you to attend.

Please do not attend the practice unless you have an appointment scheduled. Please telephone any prescription requests on 01877 331001 or request online."

Telephone: 01877 331000

Trossachs Pharmacy

"Revised Trossachs Pharmacy hours are currently 10am-1pm 2pm-5pm Monday to Friday - however these are subject to change.

Please allow a minimum of 72 hours before attempting to collect prescriptions.

Please refrain from calling the pharmacy to check if prescriptions are ready prior to the 72 hour waiting period as dealing with these basic enquiries is taking essential time away from our staff dispensing your medications.

If you have any symptoms or ailments and require advice, please contact the pharmacy by phone and you will be offered a phone consultation - we are trying to minimise face to face contact where possible.

Thanks for your continued support,

The Trossachs Team"
