As restrictions ease in Scotland we continue to remain OPEN to patients. Our appointments are via telephone triage initially, where a Clinician will arrange for you to come to the Practice if required at a time that is safe to do so. This if for your protection and that of other patients, as well as to protect staff. Our Patient Advisors will ask you for further details in order to direct you to the most appropriate Clinician. Thank you for your patience and understanding at what is a challenging time.
If you have any COVID symptoms please contact 111 for initial assessment. We are unfortunately not able to assess you until we receive this report from 111. Symptoms of COVID-19 include:
- A high temperature or fever
- New continuous cough
- Change in sense of smell or taste
Further and up-to-date information can be found at NHS Inform
At the Practice we have been vaccinating all patients aged 65 year or over as well as those patients who have been Shielding. We have now finished our COVID vaccination clinics for these patients however if you have missed your vaccination please let NHS know either via their web form or on the National helpline on 0800 030 8013.
COVID Vaccination Certificates
The Scottish Government have advised not to contact your GP Practice to ask for a COVID vaccination passport or status certificate, as we will not be able to provide this for you. International certification standards have not yet been agreed, and 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 with the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future COVID certification requirements. As part of this, they are developing a technical solution that could allow people to access their COVID vaccination status directly.
