Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update
Why are GP Practices still working differently?
The Practice has introduced new measures in order to protect both patients and staff.
If you are in need of medical assistance, please contact the Surgery and pass on the details to our reception staff who will arrange for your call to be triaged by a Doctor/Advanced Nurse Practitioner.
Nurses appointments are available for urgent injections and dressings. HGV medicals and travel advice/injections have been cancelled until further notice.
If you are asked to attend the surgery for an appointment, you will be required to wear a face covering in order to protect our staff and other patients. Unfortunately we are unable to supply face masks.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN ASKED TO DO SO
Further information about the changes to services due to Coronavirus can be found at: https://www.nhsinform.scot/communityhealth
Please continue to order your repeat prescriptions in the same way. Please use the online ordering system if you can. Otherwise, place your repeat slip in the box located at the main exit of the Surgery.
It is not possible to pick up a prescription at the Surgery. If you are unsure where your prescription has been sent, please call us and we will let you know.
If you have requested a medical certificate or letter, we will post this out to you. (For letters any fees must be paid online in advance).
Scottish Government long COVID campaign launched
The Scottish Government has this week launched a long Covid campaign that aims to highlight the long term effects of Covid-19 (long Covid) and offers advice on self managing symptoms.
There is a dedicated link at https://www.nhsinform.scot/ where you can access information and support if you have ongoing symptoms after Coronavirus. There is a long Covid overview, signs and symptoms as well as information on recovery.
Exemptions to wearing face coverings
The Practice will NOT provide face covering exemption letters for travelling purposes. Further information can be found here
