Proof of COVID vaccination

Please do not contact the GP Surgery to ask for a covid-19 vaccination passport or status certificate – we will not be able to provide any standard document. International certification standards have not yet been agreed.

The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel, once it is safe to do so. They are working with the other UK nations and the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future covid-19 certification requirements for international travel. As part of this, Scottish Government is developing a technical solution that could allow people to access their covid-19 vaccination status directly.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

GMC

The Practice has introduced new measures in order to protect both patients and staff.

Appointments 

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.  All pill checks, 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
