Practice Update

The practice is open.

Following the Covid situation we are trying to keep the footfall within the Health Centre at a safe level for both patients and staff.  Please help us to do this by only attending the Health Centre if you have been asked to do so.

All consultations are telephone consultations in the first instance – the Doctor will arrange any face to face appointment if necessary.

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered online (contact the practice for further details), by placing your re-order slip in the red box at the front door, handing your reorder slip in at Reception or in some cases your regular Pharmacy will re-order your repeat medication.  Your repeat prescription can be sent to a Pharmacy of your choice.  The practice no longer accepts telephone requests for repeat prescriptions.

Our Practice Nurse is carrying out cervical smears, Diabetic reviews, Blood pressure reviews etc as normal.  Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) reviews are being carried out by telephone or face to face.

If you require medical assistance please do not hesitate to telephone the surgery, we are still here for you.  You will be asked more questions regarding your problem, this is to help direct your call to the most appropriate healthcare consultant.  All information is treated confidentially.

If you are invited to attend the Health Centre please attend at the time advised and wear a face covering.

If you have any symptoms of Covid (persistent cough, breathlessness, loss of taste or smell, high temperature) then please DO NOT ATTEND the Health Centre, please contact the surgery to arrange a Telephone Consultation.   Out of Hours if your symptoms are severe contact NHS 24 on 111.  Further information regarding the Coronavirus is available online at NHS Inform NHS Scotland COVID Status | NHS inform.
