We are currently restricting access for the safety of all patients and staff.
We remain open for all essential primary care problems but on the advice of Health Protection Scotland we have put in place a process whereby everyone is screened by telephone prior to being seen. See our coronavirus further information page for more details.
All patients will still have access to the care they require.
We appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.
You can call the practice on 01382 451100 or out of hours NHS 24 on 111.
Further information is available on https://www.nhsinform.scot/
and on our coronavirus page.
We are very excited to be involved in the Government covid vaccination programme. We have begun to receive supplies from NHS Scotland and we are aiming to vaccinate our eligible patients as quickly as possible, following the government guidelines on the priority groups. This is entirely dependent on stock availability.
We will contact you to make your appointment as soon as you are eligible and we have sufficient supply of vaccines.
Currently the government phases (in order of priority) are:
Health and social care workers
Aged 70> and extremely vulnerable patients (shielded)
Aged 16-64 with underlying medical conditions
We will update you as soon as we know more, or if anything changes.
Calls are recorded
for health, safety and quality purposes.
We offer this service. Please ask one of our patient advisers for more information.
Scams - be vigilant
There have been instances where (what we would assume to be) private companies have contacted patients and given the impression that they have NHS permission to do so. In fact they have hoped to sell some sort of medical equipment to you.
Permission has not been obtained from the practice and we have not released your medical information.
Please be vigilant and absolutely sure who you are speaking to before divulging information about yourself. You should of course contact the police if you feel at all threatened and if you keep us updated, we will happily liaise with the Board in the hope that we can protect others from scammers.
We will be able to offer a limited number of immunisations to eligible patients - see our clinics and services page for more information. These will mainly be with our nurses on a weekday afternoon and by appointment only.
Household members of shielded patients are also eligible this year.
We are grateful for your understanding of the need to limit contact and protect our vulnerable patients from coronavirus.
Once you or your household contact receive a letter regarding flu immunisation, please telephone the practice to book an appointment. For attendance, please follow these steps:
- Ensure you have no symptoms of fever, cough or loss of taste/smell.
- Arrive on time
- Ring the bell and wait for staff to book you in.
- Wait outside at a safe distance until a clinician comes for you.
- Wear a face covering if you can and sanitise your hands on entry to the practice.
