The NHS Tayside GP Out of Hours Service has updated its fleet of vehicles in time for the busy festive season.

The service, which has more than 80,000 patient contacts a year, sees anyone who requires urgent medical treatment when their GP practice is closed.

Public holidays including over the Christmas and New Year periods are the busiest time for the service with a committed Out of Hours team based across Tayside to support patients.

The vehicles were chosen to safely carry clinicians and medical equipment across the large area the service covers.

Clinical Lead Dr Shawkat Hasan said, “Our dedicated clinicians provide a vital service to patients in their own homes and our vehicles are critical to supporting this.”
