We are delighted to have started our COVID19 Vaccination Clinics.
GPs have been asked to provide vaccines for those aged 80 and over, moving on to those aged 75 – 79 and then those who are shielding.
**Important Note** All other groups will be offered appointments via Health Board run services by letter.
The delivery of the vaccine is in small batches and we are not certain when these will arrive. As soon as we have supplies of vaccine our team will contact you to arrange an appointment.
There is no need for you to contact the practice as we will be in touch with those eligible. If you have any questions about the COVID Vaccine, please visit NHS Inform, or call the national helpline 0800 030 8013 which is open from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week.
**Important Note** If you wish to query missing Covid vaccination appointments, please click on the NHS Inform link below.
Novel Coronavirus Surgery Changes.
Due to the ongoing and rapidly changing Coronavirus pandemic and to ensure the safety of patients and NHS Staff, we have unfortunately had to stop offering the following.
NHS 111 has an ONLINE CORONAVIRUS SERVICE and Helpline (0800 028 2816) that can tell you if you require medical assistance, or advise you.
It is important that you DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY OR VISIT THE PHARMACY IF YOU THINK YOU MAY HAVE CORONAVIRUS.
Please phone the practice if you have a separate medical issue or wish to arrange Prescription Collection (0131 668 4547).
We will operate a Telephone Triage System to offer advice and/or offer an appointment if clinically appropriate.
If you are experiencing a New Cough, Shortness of Breath or Fever do not attend the surgery. Visit www.nhsinform.scot and arrange a test.
We apologise for the temporary changes, but hope you understand this is due to unprecedented problems the virus is presenting.
