Symptoms of COVID are a new persistent dry cough +/- fever +/- loss of sense of taste of smell. If you have any of these the government advice is to self-isolate, check out the nhsinform website, and book a COVID test. This is the same for adults and for children. Please only call 111 if you or your child has worsening symptoms. Self care advice for common conditions can be found in the “who should I see” section of our website.
We are continuing to operate our usual telephone triage system with a GP or nurse practitioner who will assess and treat as appropriate. In line with national guidance we will aim to deal with most issues by telephone or by video link where appropriate. Please check out this link to how the video appointments work if you think this may work for you. Only patients with a pre-booked appointment will be allowed into the practice.
If you have no symptoms but are worried about the virus, contact with a possible case, or unsure about the latest Health Protection guidance, please do not call the surgery but use the freefone Coronavirus Information Line on 0800 028 2816.
Isolation Notes are available online if you are self-isolating and need a note for your employer.
As of January 2021, the COVID-19 vaccination program is underway. The most vulnerable and elderly will be prioritised. NHS Scotland will send you a letter when it is your turn to be vaccinated. Please do not call the GP practice or NHS Scotland before then. There is also a national helpline number which gives more information about who’ll be offered the coronavirus vaccine and its delivery.
