Covid 19 vaccination programme

We are continuing to arrange vaccination clinics for COVID-19. Appointments are being offered based on the JCVI criteria (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation) and we will contact you by phone or letter when you are eligible.

Changes to Access as a result of COVID-19.

This GP Practice is 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.

All patients will still have access to the care they require.

We understand that for some patients, it is frustrating that we cannot offer face to face appointments as easily as in the past. We are being guided by Scottish Government in how we offer appointments. For further information please click here.

PLEASE TRY TO PHONE OR USE THE ONLINE REPEAT PRESCRIPTION REQUEST SERVICE. WE WOULD APPRECIATE NO REPEAT SLIPS BEING HANDED TO THE SURGERY. WE WILL BE CONTINUING WITH OUR DISPENSING SERVICE AS USUAL.

Please allow 4 working days after requesting a prescription before coming to collect it.

SCREENING APPOINTMENTS

Cervical screening, breast screening, diabetic retinopathy and bowel screening appointments are now being sent out.  If you have any queries with regard to these screening programmes please contact  NHS inform on 0800 22 44 88 or contact a Screening Centre.

Under the new data protection regulations introduced from 25th May 2018, we will continue to contact patients via text messages regarding the delivery of care if they have provided consent to do so.

If practices are sending messages about recommended treatment for the management of a specific health issue, then this is defined as providing appropriate care for patients, not marketing purposes.
