Noticeboard

We are currently still following covid-19 NHS Scotland Guidelines for patient wishing medical advice.  This means the first contact you will have with the surgery is with our health advisors who will triage your call and pass this to the GP.  The GP will then phone you back and if they feel you need to be seen face to face they will give you a time to come to the surgery.  Do not attend earlier as you will be asked to wait outside until your appointment time.  We appreciate this is frustrating, however, our staff are working hard and doing their best to keep everyone safe and we ask you to be respectful of this.  Thank you for your co operation.

Are You a Jedburgh Carer?

Many Jedburgh people rely on carers who make a significant regular commitment of their time and energies. Their work is of great value, providing care and support additional to publicly-funded services.

Do You Rely on a Carer?

Many Jedburgh people rely on “carers”. Carers can include spouses, partners, children, friends, and neighbours.

Definition of a Carer:

A person of any age who provides unpaid help and support to a relative, friend, or neighbour who cannot manage independently without the carer’s help, due to frailty, disability, or addiction.

Let Your GP or Nurse Know

If you are a carer or rely on a carer, please let your doctor or nurse know at your next consultation.

With your consent, we can add this to your record. We can also provide carers with a booklet “Information for Carers”, and if appropriate a Carers Self Assessment Pack.
