COVID VACCINE

We have been advised by the national team that all those not yet vaccinated in cohort 8 or 9 (50-59) are to be invited in the first instance using the national Service Now system, appointing directly to locality central clinic. Our practice staff cannot book or reschedule these appointments.

We have started appointing patients who are due for their second dose.  This is all dependant on vaccine supply our reception team will be in touch to appoint you.  If you had your first vaccine at the community clinics they will contact you to book you for your second dose and our practice staff cannot book or reschedule these appointments.

The self-registration portal for unpaid carers went live this morning and can be found at 

 Letter of proof of Covid vaccination: Scottish Government are working on a solution and communication should be forthcoming for the Practice and the general public. We also  want to make you aware that Covid19 Vaccines and vaccine passports are being sold on darknet. Read in BBC News: https://apple.news/

COVID19 SYMPTOMS

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.

 ATTENDING THE PRACTICE

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.
