If you have a cough, fever or new loss of (of change in) taste or smell but are well please self-isolate for seven days (from the start of your symptoms); this is in line with national guidance. If you are unwell or feeling you may need hospital assessment due to these symptoms, please and dial 111 for NHS24.
If anyone in your household has developed a cough or fever in the last seven days, you should self-isolate for 14 days. Please refer to www.nhsinform.scot for further information.
We are currently running a reduced service. All requests for GP appointments will be triaged by telephone only. These measures have been put in place to protect our patients and staff. We would ask that patients do not attend the Practice unless you have been told to do so but would like to reassure our patients that they will be seen by a GP or a Nurse if needed.
Repeat prescriptions will be processed however; these will take up to 10 working days from the point of ordering until collection from your local Pharmacy. If you feel that your prescription request is urgent then please mark it as such. We would politely ask that all requests for prescriptions are made online via patient access, by email email@example.com or by posting your repeat request form through the letterbox located in the foyer. Collection of prescriptions should be made at the Pharmacy of your choice therefore, we would urge all patients to contact us and let us know their preferred Pharmacy.
Our telephone lines are busier than normal therefore we would encourage all of our patients to regularly check our website for further updates and for further information regarding the symptoms and actions to take in relation to COVID-19 are available from NHS Inform www.nhsinform.scot/coronavirus or telephoning 0800 028 2816.
Thank you for your continued support.
