CORONAVIRUS (COVID 19)
The Scottish Government requires General Practice and other healthcare settings to have different infection control and physical distancing guidance to other places such as hospitals and shops. This is to help reduce the risk to practice staff and to people attending the practice who may be at greater risk if they catch Covid 19. From 19 July 2021 (when we go to Level 0) the following rules still apply in General Practice: wearing of face coverings by patients and the public (unless you are exempt) physical distancing of 2 metres in waiting rooms contact your practice by telephone in the first instance wearing of PPE by staff screening of all patients for Covid 19 symptoms Please support your local practice team by complying with this guidance.
The self registration portal is now live for all adults who wish to register for their vaccine. There is no need to call the surgery. Please click on the link below.

Do not contact your GP practice about your coronavirus vaccination status. GP's cannot provide letters showing your coronavirus vaccination status.
If you have mild Covid19 symptoms and are looking for information, please visit the NHS inform website or call the special helpline on 0800 028 2816. For most, even if you are affected by coronavirus, the symptoms will be mild and you do not need to seek further medical advice.
If you have symptoms or a non related illness and feel you need to speak to a GP please call the practice where the reception staff will need to ask you a few questions to ensure you get the care you need as quickly as possible for your condition. If you give the staff brief details this will help establish the best healthcare professional for you to see.
