CORONAVIRUS (COVID 19) 

COVID VACCINE

The starting date is week commencing 11th January for General Practice starting with our over 80s cohort.  We can only run clinics based on the vaccines that are made available to us.  Hopefully this will be next week with a short supply then increasing as NHS Tayside receive more vaccines.  The practice will be in touch with patients to book an appointment when we have a sufficient supply if you require further information -

Please visit the NHS Inform website for updates - click on the following link: https://www.nhsinform.scot/healthy-living/immunisation/vaccines/coronavirus-covid-19-vaccine.

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.

 YOU SHOULD NOT ENTER THE PRACTICE UNLESS YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT.

We encourage all patients entering the practice to wear a face mask or face covering.  We are aware that some patients maybe exempt and this also includes some of our own staff.  Please arrive at the time of your appointment as you will not be permitted to sit in the waiting room too early.  Please be respectful to other patients and staff as always, and remember the 2 metre social distancing rule.
